The RCUK Impact Report 2012 details the various activities through which the Research Councils are working together to achieve greater impact, and complements the individual Impact Reports prepared by the Research Councils. It highlights RCUK’s co-ordinated investment in priority areas such as the cross-Council research themes, facilities and infrastructure, and other initiatives where there is a shared interest. It also focuses on RCUK’s co-ordinated approach to working with key strategic stakeholders to facilitate knowledge exchange, our partnerships with other funders, and our collective policy influence to drive culture change in the higher education sector.
Minister for Universities and Science David Willetts said: "This excellent report shows that the UK research base is not only at the cutting edge of scientific and academic discovery, but also is doing more to translate this into practical wider benefits. This helps to keep us ahead in the global race.”
