In this report, ‘Research to Recovery: Delivering an R&D-driven Industrial Strategy’, NCUB’s R&D Taskforce set out a collective vision and set of recommendations for a future driven by collaboration through research and development.

NCUB was asked to launch a Taskforce to advise on the future of UK Research and Development (R&D) in July 2020. The Taskforce, requested by UK Research and Innovation, considered how partnerships between universities and businesses can be strengthened and maximised to drive growth and prosperity.

Supported by four advisory groups, the main Taskforce group brought together senior leaders from across industry and academia.
