BBSRC is inviting comment on the future strategy for UK biotechnology and biological sciences. An online questionnaire seeks input to shape our emerging thinking. The questionnaire is open to all, see: Key Survey: Strategy for UK biotechnology and biological sciences (read our Terms of use: Key Survey), it closes on 11 October 2017.

The UK research and innovation landscape has changed considerably in recent years, and it continues to evolve with the creation of UK Research and Innovation. As a key investor in bioscience, BBSRC is taking the opportunity to ensure the strategic direction for UK biotechnology and biological sciences is aligned with research needs, as well as with societal and economic drivers

They questionnaire outlines our early thoughts on what might be key elements of the strategy. These are based on an initial consultation with BBSRC’s strategy advisory network and Council, as well as reflecting ongoing strategy development activities across BBSRC.

A PDF copy of the questionnaire is available below:
