CaSE submission to S&T Covid-19 inquiry
04 Dec 2020
The Covid-19 pandemic has posed unprecedented questions and challenges for the UK and its citizens. The UK’s response to the pandemic has highlighted the importance of having a world class research and innovation base. The UK’s universities, research institutions, charities and innovative businesses have come together to respond to this crisis: undertaking research to understand the origins and characteristics of the virus, working to develop effective vaccines or therapies to combat Covid-19, using advanced mathematics to model the effects of the pandemic or redirecting engineering expertise to develop key components for ventilators. Rising to the challenges posed by the pandemic has only been possible due to the strength of our research ecosystem.
CaSE takes a look at the Government’s response to Sir Paul Nurse’s independent review of the UK’s research development and innovation organisational landscape.
CaSE is launching its next major project of work, a focused look at the needs of business R&D in the UK.
This is the news we’ve all been waiting for, the UK and EU have finally agreed a deal on the UK’s association to Horizon Europe.
Earlier this month the UK Government published the Pioneer Prospectus setting out an alternative R&D programme should the UK not associate to Horizon Europe.
