Spending Round provides welcome protection for science and innovation

Authors: Ian Brinkley Ian Brinkley

Responding to Spending Round 2013, Ian Brinkley, director of The Work Foundation, said:

“As called for in our submission, government has protected the science and innovation budget, with a welcome boost for the Technology Strategy Board. There were also some impressive numbers on capital investment.  However, the review was disappointingly timid in following Lord Heseltine’s recommendations to devolve resources to the local level.”
