The UK is ranked as having the second strongest research base in the world behind only the US. The UK’s universities and research centers have an exceptional international reputation but there is room for improvement.

Given the spiraling costs associated with research and development the process needs to become more efficient and deliver better value for money. That may mean working more closely with other institutions, with the private sector, across disciplines and across international borders. If research is better co-ordinated and if resources are pooled more effectively than it is more likely that outcomes will achieve excellence and commercial success.
