HRCI’s submission to consultation on National Research & Innovation Strategy 2021-27
In July 2021, HRCI completed a submission on a new National Research and Innovation Strategy. Among other things, our submission focuses on the importance of research and innovation in addressing societal needs, the need to value to the role of health research charities and to engage and involve the public in research.
About the consultation
The development of a new national strategy for research and innovation (R&I) is a key commitment in the Government’s Economic Recovery Plan 2021. The Department of Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science will lead the development of this new national strategy. In the summer of 2021, stakeholders were invited to consider the questions posed in a consultation paper and to provide their responses via an online submission tool.
