We are creating a unified UKRI website that brings together the existing research council, Innovate UK and Research England websites.
If you would like to be involved in its development let us know.


A rigorous formal framework provides the basis for us to report on our performance to:

  • The Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS), our parent body in UK Government.
  • The STFC Council, our governing body whose members are appointed by the Minister for Universities & Science.

This framework comprises:

  • A Delivery Plan 2016-20 which sets out how we aim to meet our strategic goals in the period up to 2020
  • The STFC Scorecard ( link opens in a new window) that ties in with our Delivery Plan, with a Scorecard Report submitted to BEIS and to the STFC Council every six months summarising the completion of specific actions
  • An Annual Operating Plan presenting our plans in detail for each Financial Year.

Together, these elements enable our performance to be evaluated regularly, thoroughly and objectively.
