We are committed to making the UK a global science superpower that attracts brilliant people and businesses from across the world.

The Government has already committed over £42m Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund funding to organisations registered in the North East

We have announced plans for an ambitious place strategy for UK R&D to ensure funding builds on strengths in the regions, and nations of the UK including the North East. We will work closely with UK Research and Innovation to develop a strategy that ensures the whole country contributes to and benefits from the national 2.4% R&D target.
