The impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on researchers in universities and research institutes

Girl on a train

The Covid-19 pandemic and response has impacted research activities and outputs of the UK’s Research and Development (R&D) sector in many ways.

This research has been aimed to support the department for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), Vitae and Universities UK (UUK) to develop their response to help the research sector. 

These slides were put together by BEIS, supported by UKRI and Vitae, and are being used by BEIS and UKRI as a source to inform R&D policy development.
