From April 2018 UK Research and Innovation will be created as a result of the Higher Education and Research Bill replacing the need for a strategic partnership of the UK's seven Research Councils, Research Councils UK (RCUK).
Operating across the whole of the UK with a combined budget of more than £6 billion, UK Research and Innovation will bring together the seven Research Councils, Innovate UK and a new organisation, Research England. Research England will work closely with its partner organisations in the devolved administrations.
To learn more about UK Research and Innovation visit its interim website www.ukri.org
The RCUK website will remain and kept up to date until March 31st 2018.

Cutting-edge research, with new insights drawn from across different disciplines offers real-world solutions to seemingly intractable conflict, according to a new report.
The Research Councils have reviewed the current grant terms and conditions and are making changes to include legislative changes and additional information, these changes will start on Monday 15th January 2018.
