Russell Group responds to Queen's Speech

19 December 2019

In response to the Government setting out its legislative priorities in the Queen’s Speech, Dr. Tim Bradshaw, Chief Executive at the Russell Group, said:

"The Russell Group welcomes the Government’s commitment to increase research and development investment significantly. This will be critical to levelling up productivity across the country, reaching net zero and putting the UK at the forefront of the race for new technologies and innovation.

"We look forward to working with the Government to design an R&D strategy that enhances the UK’s position as a leading research nation so we can maximise the benefit of opportunities ahead. By investing in high-risk research, strengthening global collaboration and building a new immigration system that allows us to attract the researchers and technicians we need we can make the most of our country’s potential."
