Question for Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy

UIN 116926, tabled on 2 February 2022

To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, with reference to page 173 of the Levelling Up White Paper, what assessment he has made of the outcomes that will result from UKRI’s new objective to support Levelling Up; and how he plans to measure success of that objective.

UKRI’s new objective will help to deepen its commitment to delivering social and economic impact for citizens across the whole UK. UKRI will set out how it intends to deliver on this objective in its strategy later in 2022.

One element of that response will be a suite of resources that teams across UKRI can use to incorporate levelling up into the design and delivery of their programmes, helping UKRI to work towards a more diverse and connected system across academia, businesses and the public sector.
