Gyimah to outline plan for R&D boost in the autumn

A government plan to deliver on its pledge to increase R&D spending to 2.4 per cent of GDP by 2027 will be published this autumn, science minister Sam Gyimah has announced.

Speaking at the Conservative Party conference on 2 October, Gyimah said the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy would set out the government’s plans in two documents. 

The first, an R&D delivery plan explaining what the target means and how it could be achieved, will be published in the autumn, Gyimah said. A second document, outlining further details and aimed at feeding into the 2019 spending review, is due out in the first quarter of 2019.
