UKRI coordinates the seven disciplinary research councils of supporting Higher Education Research and Innovation


Launched in April 2018, UKRI is a non-departmental public body sponsored by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS).

UKRI brings together the seven disciplinary research councils, Research England, responsible for supporting research and knowledge exchange at higher education institutions in England, and the UK’s innovation agency, Innovate UK.

Whether through research council grants, quality-related block grants from Research England, or grants and broader support for innovative businesses from Innovate UK, UKRI works with its stakeholders to understand the opportunities and requirements of all the different parts of the research and innovation landscape, maintaining the health, breadth and depth of the system.
