Our research programme aims to help government make policies and decisions that are informed by the best scientific evidence and strategic long-term thinking.
For more information, see our work plan for 2015 to 2020.
Each year we produce a themed annual report that reflects the priorities of the Government Chief Scientific Adviser.
Blackett reviews are expert-led, independent studies to answer specific scientific or technological questions, and to inform policy-makers.
Foresight projects are in-depth studies looking at major issues 20 to 80 years in the future.
View the final project reports.
We also carry out occasional research on subjects such as animal and plant health and technology futures, and produce one-off reports on emerging issues.
