To provide certainty to the research community, we are providing a multi-year settlement for UK Research and Innovation science.

This includes increasing funding for core UK Research and Innovation science by 9% next year and £400 million on average per annum until 23-24. By 23-24, the government will be investing £1.4 billion more per annum in core funding for its world-leading research base compared to 20-21.
