摘要

In January 2017 the Government published its Industrial Strategy Green Paper. Two of the 10 ‘strategic pillars’ it listed covered ‘science, research and innovation’ and ‘developing skills’—themes addressed in several of our inquiries over recent months. Our short report is intended to bring that work together, to feed into the Government’s consultation exercise on its Green Paper.

The welcome additional £2 billion a year of funding recently promised by the Government represents a valuable contribution to maintaining the country’s worldleading science status. It will help maintain the UK as an attractive location for science and research. The Government should, nevertheless, aim to increase R&D investment—in private and public sectors together—to the 3% of GDP target which we previously advocated. It must also be ready to ensure that its science funding makes up any net shortfall in research funding available through international collaborative research as a result of Brexit.

The broad innovation thrust of the Green Paper has been largely welcomed, including the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund and the Government’s approach of allowing sectors to take the lead in making the case for ‘sector deals’. A responsive UKRI, and a multi-disciplinary approach to its strategies and science funding, will make it easier to adjust research priorities to be tuned to our post-Brexit opportunities. We welcome the Government’s decision to survey the practices of universities’ technology transfer offices.
