The Department is undertaking the following reviews on matters of public policy or delivery:

  • A major review of research bureaucracy and methods, to free up the best researchers and establish the UK as a global science superpower.
  • A review to understand the barriers that young people from all backgrounds face to starting and growing a business, led by The Prince’s Trust.
  • The Magnox Inquiry, an independent inquiry into the award of the Magnox decommissioning contract by the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority and its subsequent termination.

We support wider Government reviews, including the Net Zero Review led by HM Treasury, to support the UK's world leading climate commitment. We also support two independent business-led reviews to improve gender and ethnic minority representation at the top of UK business; the Hampton-Alexander and Parker Reviews.
