In the run up to Christmas, the government released their Science and Innovation Strategy – ‘Our plan for growth: science and innovation’ – addressing how to support infrastructure, business investment and talent for UK science and innovation, and how to maximise the benefits for the UK economy. This week’s video, from the Department of Business Innovation and Skills, outlines the strategy and what it means for UK researchers and innovators.

It’s great to see a long-term government plan setting out capital commitments which take into account several recommendations the BIA made on behalf of its membership and the wider life sciences sector, such as the equitable split in funding for higher education and maintaining the UK’s world class labs alongside large scale investments in major national and international projects.
