Increased UK funding for science and tech (Reuters)

Increased UK funding for science and tech (Reuters)

It was recently announced that, to make up for the loss of EU funding for R&D post-Brexit, Theresa May has pledged to increase the UK’s investment in science and technology by £2 billion per year by 2020. In an article in Reuters, Novasecta, said that it is only a “small step” towards calming Brexit nerves in the industry. Putting the investment in perspective, we state that “it is, for instance, significantly smaller than the 26 billion pounds the U.S. government invests in the National Institutes of Health every year, and therefore may not make the UK as competitive as hoped.”
