We have announced increases in public R&D spending worth £7bn up to 2021/2022, and we are working with UK Research and Innovation and other key partners to develop a roadmap that sets out how government and industry will work together to reach our target of increasing R&D investment to 2.4% of GDP by 2027, which would be the highest recorded level, and 3% in the longer-term.

Over the last 12 years Innovate UK, now part of UK Research and Innovation, has invested over £2.2 billion in innovation. This has spanned more than 11,000 projects that have generated up to £16 billion in Gross Value Added for the UK economy and 70,000 jobs.
