BBSRC publishes Delivery Plan for 2016 to 2020

BBSRC has published its Delivery Plan for 2016/17 to 2019/20. The plan recognises BBSRC’s unique role in supporting the UK’s world-leading bioscience research base in driving scientific advances, and in exploiting the transformative power of bioscience for the widest possible benefit. The plans are centred on five outcome-focused themes that will guide their investments and actions over the period:

  • Driving bioscience discovery – advancing the boundaries of knowledge and upholding the UK’s global leadership in bioscience

  • Building a more resilient and secure future – promoting bioscience research that addresses strategic societal challenges, scientific opportunities and economic growth in the UK and beyond

  • Transforming and creating bio-based businesses – using bioscience research to enhance productivity, transform businesses and create new market opportunities

  • Growing and attracting talent – investing in skilled people for the research base, and building capability in the UK workforce

  • Strengthening the UK’s position as a global partner – capitalising on UK bioscience research strengths and strong international links to foster collaborations and enhance contributions to international development
