Our Delivery Plan focuses resources on research and innovation where there is significant social demand, where data and people are in place to undertake the research, and where there is a clear pathway to deliver improved social and economic outcomes. 

The plan details our priority research and innovation themes, and supporting foundational pillars. It is part of a family of plans which together detail UKRI’s approach to delivering the government’s target of 2.4% GDP spend on research and innovation by 2027.
