A new brand for the Economic and Social Sciences Research Council (ESRC) has been launched today as part of a unified identity for UK Research and Innovation (UKRI).
The new brand reflects UKRI’s vision along with the identities and remits of the nine councils that form the organisation.
UKRI will now begin a phased introduction across the organisation and the facilities it manages.
Professor Jennifer Rubin, ESRC Executive Chair, said: “This new brand reflects the broader alignment of the councils in UKRI, and I am delighted that ESRC is an integral part of this.”
UK Research and Innovation Chief Executive, Professor Sir Mark Walport, said: “UKRI has an important role to play and an important story to tell. The unified brand will help us to tell this story nationally and internationally.
“It shows how the organisation brings together the seven research councils, Research England and Innovate UK to deliver on our ambitions as a world-class funder, creating knowledge with impact across society and the economy.”
