The United Kingdom’s future success as a rich, strong, influential country, whose citizens enjoy prosperity and security, and fulfilled, healthy and sustainable lives, will correspondingly depend on our ability to build on our existing strengths in science, technology, finance and innovation.
The Science and Technology Framework is the strategic anchor that government policy will deliver against, and which the government will hold itself accountable to.
The framework focuses on:
identifying critical technologies
signalling the UK’s strengths and ambitions
investment in R&D
talent and skills
financing innovative science and technology companies
access to physical and digital infrastructure
regulation and standards
innovative public sector
We will have a clear action plan for each stand of the framework in place by summer 2023 and delivery will be overseen by the National Science and Technology Council.
