Following Sajid Javid MP’s resignation and the appointment of new Chancellor of the Exchequer, Rishi Sunak MP, the Government’s Budget announcement has been confirmed as remaining 11 March.

AMRC has submitted a budget representation to HM Treasury outlining the sector’s key asks. These include: maintaining the balance of the UK’s research system, especially in light of creation of a UK version of the Advanced Research Projects Agency (a successful US research agency); supporting the foundations of the UK’s research base by boosting Quality-Related (QR) funding; ensuring the sustainability of charity-university partnerships by increasing the Charity Research Support Fund; investing in the National Institutes for Health Research (NIHR) to realise the ambition for the UK to be the global hub for life sciences; and financing full UK association to Horizon Europe.
