UKRI has announced detailed plans for its research and innovation goals. UKRI councils show how they will play their part to support research and drive economic, social, environmental and cultural benefits.

Eight of the nine councils that make up UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) have published their strategic delivery plans.

The plans set out how each of the councils will play their part in spending the organisation’s £7.9 billion annual budget.

Breadth of research and innovation

The plans detail support for the breadth of research and innovation that UKRI invests in.

This ranges from:

  • Engineering
  • biological sciences
  • social sciences
  • Medicine
  • the environment
  • cutting edge technology and facilities
  • the latest business innovation

The strategic delivery plans sit alongside the corporate plan. Together these plans explain the part each council will play in delivering the wider UKRI mission and vision and detail the activities they will undertake during the three-year spending period.

This includes showing how they will deliver on UKRI’s five-year strategy, transforming tomorrow together, and implement the UKRI corporate plan.
