Science and innovation are at the centre of UK and US government strategy for promoting prosperity and growth. The US is an important partner for the UK research community, and collaborations generate mutual benefits for the two countries.


To promote international collaboration in science and innovation, the Department for Science, Innovation and Technology and the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office jointly fund the UK Science and Innovation Network (SIN), based in over 40 countries around the world.

SIN works across the entire UK science and innovation landscape supporting UK stakeholders to make international connections, set up strategic collaborations and leverage research and innovation funding, driving global prosperity and growth.

In the USA, we have thirteen staff based in the British Embassy in Washington DC and our Consulates in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles and San Francisco.

For an introductory brief which covers the local science and innovation landscape, UK priorities and successes in the USA, read the UK Science and Innovation Network USA Snapshot.


SIN USA focuses on the following priority sectors:

  • Agritech & Food
  • Digital Economy
  • Clean Energy
