ABPI response to Government R&D Roadmap
The Government has published its R&D Roadmap with plans to cement the UK as the world’s leading research and science superpower.
The ambition for Britain to be a science superpower is exactly the direction we need to take as we leave the EU and emerge from the pandemic. Richard Torbett
The Research and Development Roadmap puts pursuing ground-breaking research, attracting global talent, and cutting unnecessary red tape at the forefront of our long-term plan to ensure the UK is the best place in the world for scientists, researchers and entrepreneurs to live, work and innovate.
In response, Richard Torbett, Chief Executive of the ABPI, said:
"The ambition for Britain to be a science superpower is exactly the direction we need to take as we leave the EU and emerge from the pandemic.
"The life sciences sector invests more than any other in UK research. That’s why it is critical that these plans are delivered in partnership with our companies if we are to reach the ambitious target of spending 2.4 per cent of GDP on R&D."
