Ensuring that our businesses have access to the skills they need will be key to supporting economic recovery. We are working closely with the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government, the Department for Education, the Department for Work and Pensions and HM Treasury on ensuring that skills support is an important part of the response to impact of Covid-19 on the economy. As part of our recovery and our wider R&D ambitions, we will be supporting University-Business engagement through a range of approaches, including collaborative research, innovation and skills activity.
