Science and Innovation: A consultation document on working towards a ten-year investment framework

The Government will publish a ten-year investment framework for science and innovation alongside the 2004 Spending Review. The framework will set out the Government’s ambition for UK science and innovation over the next decade, in particular their contribution to economic growth and public services, and the attributes and funding arrangements of a research system capable of delivering this.

The Government is conducting a dialogue with key stakeholders – including the scientific community, businesses, charities and regional and devolved bodies – in drawing up this framework. To inform this process, the Government published a consultation document Science and innovation: working towards a ten-year investment framework as part of Budget 2004.

The consultation on the ten-year investment framework for science and innovation closed on 30 April 2004. Around 200 consultation responses were received from organisations and individuals.

The Consultation document is available below in Adobe Acrobat Portable Document Format (PDF).
