At this Spending Review, the government committed to increasing public R&D investment to £20 billion across the UK by 2024-25.

This will flow to individual departments as they set their R&D allocations in due course and will support priorities agreed by the Prime Minister’s new National Science and Technology Council (NSTC), such as Quantum Computing, Artificial Intelligence, Bioinformatics and Space technologies.
