Supporting world-leading British research

The government has announced allocations for a record £25.1 billon research and development investment, supporting world-leading research and boosting jobs and growth as we make the United Kingdom a science superpower. 

  • As we look back at the last two years, it is hard to imagine a time when we have owed more to scientists, researchers and innovators.
  • As we work to progress British science even further, we have announced allocations for £25.1 billion of funding to UK Research and Innovation. This includes £16.8 billion through core budgets for UKRI’s seven Research Councils, Research England and Innovate UK; a £2 billion investment over the three year period for a new collective cross-council approach to talent initiatives; and £2.9 billion investment over the three year period in infrastructure projects
  • This investment will support the UK’s already world-leading research work being done across the country, delivering local jobs and growth via R&D funding, attracting and developing top research talent, and helping unlock private sector investment.
