Event description

Description

This half-day forum on 4 July will provide you with an opportunity to learn about our emerging strategic priorities and to hear from senior colleagues in UKRI about their vision and strategy for UK research and innovation as a whole. The event will also provide opportunities for strategic discussion with Research England staff on emerging policy and funding themes including the 2.4% R&D target, balanced funding/ dual support, and the forthcoming Knowledge Exchange Framework.

David Sweeney, Executive Chair, Research England will host the forum with Rebecca Endean Strategy Director, UK Research and Innovation.

There will be an interactive component of the forum through facilitated table discussions with a Research England subject specialist guiding the conversation. We will be seeking your views to help inform the development of our work.
