Minister for Universities and Science David Willetts has today (24 January 2013) announced the publication of the Research Councils UK (RCUK) Impact Report 2012, during his speech at the Policy Exchange to update on progress of the Government's industrial strategy.
The report details the various activities through which the Research Councils are working together to achieve greater impact. Additionally, it complements the individual Impact Reports prepared by the Research Councils, also published today.
David Willetts said: "These excellent reports show that the UK research base is not only at the cutting edge of scientific and academic discovery, but also is doing more to translate this into practical wider benefits. This helps to keep us ahead in the global race."
