BEIS UK Research & Development roadmap consultation: written evidence

Published: 11 Aug 2020 in

The Government's UK Research and Development (R&D) Roadmap aims to ensure the UK is the best place in the world for scientists, researchers and entrepreneurs to live and work. This will help to power up our economic recovery and level up the UK.

The roadmap is the start of a big conversation on what actions need to be taken and how. Over the coming months we will develop the proposals in our roadmap in a comprehensive R&D plan.

This plan will only be effective if it is developed with people and organisations across the UK. 

The Society response focused on points including: upholding commitments to investing in UK R&D, investing in research in the NHS, and collaboration between the NHS and life sciences, and ensuring controlled drugs legislation is not a barrier to legitimate research.
