As part of UK Research and Innovation, EPSRC will play an essential and enhanced role in delivering the government's modern Industrial Strategy, driving economic and social prosperity in the UK, and decreasing the timescales between discovery research and impact.

Our vision is to ensure that the UK is the place where the most creative researchers can deliver world-leading research. Our Delivery Plan focuses on complementary objectives which underline what we want to achieve, how we will achieve it and the tools that will enable us to do so.
