We monitor United Kingdom Research and Innovation (UKRI), producing insightful analysis and commentary about the performance of their various policies and schemes.  The UKRI are the main organisation who fund (and thus set policy on) how research is conducted within our Universities. 

Welcome! The UKRI Observatory is a project to document the activities of UKRI. We are here to produce insighful analysis of the UKRI's schemes and intiatives. Our mission is to understand what is working, what is not, and thereby help improve the quality of decision making within UK Science. The UKRI is also an organisation who sets working conditions for academics and researchers, so our wider project should be of interest to all people who work within UK Higher Education Institutions. 

We are an inclusive organisation, so if there is material you would like to us to consider publishing, or tips/information you have for us, then please do get in touch. If you would like to get more involved in this project, then feel free to also drop us a line.

All the best,

the UKRI Observatory.
