NAO-Royal Society event on cross-government Research & Development

On 13 December 2017 the NAO and Royal Society hosted an event discussing issues around research and development. The UK research landscape is set for major changes, including the formation of the UK Research & Innovation, the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union, the prominent role of science in the government’s industrial strategy, and additional government funds committed to research.

Our web-page Cross-government funding of research and development provides further information, including our report, six case studies and an evaluative framework to help funders establish strategic leadership arrangements, set priorities, share information and data to make informed-decisions on what to fund, and evaluate research outcomes.
