The Global Science and Innovation Network

Science and innovation play a key role in promoting prosperity and growth. They are at the heart of government strategy for promoting sustainable UK economic recovery. International collaboration in science and innovation is vital for meeting policy challenges on a global scale. Challenges such as pandemic disease, climate change, and food security, require the ability to engage other governments with, and through, sound science.

For these reasons, the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills and the Foreign & Commonwealth Office jointly fund a network of Science Officers overseas. The Science and Innovation Network consists of around 90 staff, based in 40 British Embassies, High Commissions and Consulates, across 25 countries around the world. SIN officers engage with the local science and innovation community in support of UK policy overseas.

SIN works to initiate and support:

  • International science collaboration of best with best to the benefit of the UK.
  • International innovation collaboration to augment UK capabilities.

The Science and Innovation Network works closely with a wide range of partners from government, business and academia. It aims to complement the work of other key partners such as UK Trade & Investment (UKTI), The British Council, Research Councils UK (RCUK) and the Department for International Development (DFID).
