The 10-Year Vision for Science and Innovation: Opportunity and Challenge

Sir Keith O'Nions, Director General of Research Councils, on the opportunities and challenges of the 10-Year Science and Innovation Strategy.

Professor Sir Keith O'Nions FRS

Director General of Research Councils

The UK is embarking upon the delivery of a 10-Year Science and Innovation Strategy. Announced by the Chancellor of the Exchequer last July, it is the UK Government's largest commitment yet to global excellence in research and innovation. The 10-Year Framework targets investment at making the UK world-class in basic science, translating knowledge more effectively into innovation and enabling the UK to become a leading place for R&D and high value-added business. Sir Keith O'Nions will explore the opportunities and challenges behind this vision.

Professor Sir Keith O'Nions FRS became Director General of Research Councils on 1 January 2004. Formerly Chief Scientific Adviser at the Ministry of Defence, he is a Professor of the Physics and Chemistry of Minerals at the University of Oxford. He received a Knighthood for services to Earth Sciences in the 1999 Queen’s Birthday Honours.
