Building the evidence base on the impact of investing in UK research and innovation
- Closed for applications
The National Academies recognised a need to better understand the range of benefits that research and innovation bring to the UK, the distribution of those benefits across the country and its population, how those benefits are achieved and how best to measure them. The Academies assembled a steering group to oversee the commissioning of two evidence syntheses to investigate these questions. These reports were intended as a step in developing an evidence base to better describe the conditions needed to ensure the continued excellence of the UK’s outstanding research and innovation base and its delivery of benefits, broadly understood, to the UK’s people.
Evidence synthesis on the conditions needed to translate research and drive innovation
The aim of this study is to understand the conditions needed to translate research and drive innovation.
Evidence synthesis on measuring the distribution of benefits of research and innovation
The aim of this study is to understand the range of benefits which derive from research and innovation (R&I), how they are measured, and the gaps in the evidence.
