R&D Decade: Campaign Profiles
01 May 2020
With R&D funding set to rise over the next ten years, CaSE and the Wellcome Trust are looking at how best to make the case to ensure we secure the benefits of this investment. Research can transform lives and we want to see the investment needed to overcome the challenges facing the world. With the Government making positive statements about the future of public investment in research, we want to secure the benefits these promises could deliver.
CaSE and the Wellcome Trust want to work with others to find the most effective way to make our case. To help us with this, and ensure we’re taking an objective view on our work as advocates, we’ve commissioned policy specialists Public First to assist us.
As part of the first stage of the project, Public First have profiled 25 campaigns to understand how they frame their objectives, the tactics they use, and the secrets of their success or failure.
We’ll be publishing our full findings later in the year. You can read about all the other work on the project here.
This briefing explores attitudes to R&D across the UK’s regions, based on evidence from CaSE’s Discovery Decade 2022-23 public attitudes study.
A General Election year presents a real opportunity for the R&D sector to make our voices heard.
CaSE has launched its R&D Advocacy Toolkit with a pair of guides for organisations and individuals who want to make R&D matter to more people, whether that’s the public or politicians.
The Discovery Decade team discusses the results of the latest piece of polling from its major piece of research into public attitudes to R&D.
