In Northern Ireland there are currently over 190 UKRI funded projects worth approximately £146 million. This includes project awards through the Strength in Places Fund, which is designed to build on existing strengths in research and innovation to support innovation-led regional growth.

UKRI and other Government R&D funders will continue to work with places across the UK, as part of the Government’s mission to increase domestic public investment in R&D outside the Greater South East by at least 40% by 2030.
