The Nurse Review


In March 2023, the Government published the Independent Review of the UK’s Research, Development and Innovation Organisational Landscape, chaired by Sir Paul Nurse. This major review has a number of key conclusions and recommendations about the way that research and innovation are structured and funded in the UK.

On 15 May 2023, the Foundation for Science and Technology brought together a panel to discuss the review and some of its conclusions. The speakers were: Sir Paul Nurse, Chair, the Research, Development & Innovation Landscape Review; Chi Onwurah MP, Labour Shadow Minister for Science, Research & Innovation; Dr Peter Thompson, Chief Executive of the National Physical Laboratory; and Vivienne Stern, Chief Executive of Universities UK.

A video recording, presentation slides and speaker audio from the event are available on the FST website:,-Development-Inno
