UK Research and Innovation

Big challenges demand big thinkers – those who can unlock the answers and further our understanding of the important issues of our time. Our work encompasses everything from the physical, biological and social sciences, to innovation, engineering, medicine, the environment and the cultural impact of the arts and humanities. In all of these areas, our role is to bring together the people who can innovate and change the world for the better. We work with the government to invest over £7 billion a year in research and innovation by partnering with academia and industry to make the impossible, possible. Through the UK’s nine leading academic and industrial funding councils, we create knowledge with impact.

 

UK Research and Innovation is delighted to support the PraxisAuril KE Awards again this year. As a steward to the Research and Innovation ecosystem, UKRI is delighted to partner with PraxisAuril to recognise and reward all those involved in realising the impact from research through knowledge exchange. KE professionals play an important role helping research to make an impact on society and the economy. This important role of KE professionals has been further exemplified during the extremely challenging year of the pandemic.”
