Vanessa Wilson CEO

The UK Government have today announced a support package for researchers, scientists and technicians working at UK universities during COVID-19.

Responding to the announcement, Vanessa Wilson, University Alliance CEO said:

“Today’s announcement is a first step in protecting and enhancing the UK’s research base and we look forward to working with the government to develop the details of the support package. It will be important that interventions support a wide range of research and development activities, and the role of innovation and knowledge exchange is not lost.

“Alliance universities are already using their knowledge exchange maturity to support businesses to survive, innovate and grow through the post-pandemic recovery and it’s vital that this package supports the levelling up agenda across the four nations”.
