Hi from sunny Glasgow!
Shona Campbell
Brighton's not even that sunny!

Inclusivity is great, but given the pressure on public funds in the wake of the C-19 crisis, what do you think are the priority areas that you'll be looking to accelerate to market?
Mark Rushforth
That IAA harmonsiation would be very well received at Lancaster - we have IAAs from EPSRC, STFC, ESRC and MRC all with seperate reporting guidelines and funding periods.
Liz Flint
A related question to my one about priority areas - is anyone in BEIS looking again at the Industrial Strategy and/or anyone at UKRI looking at any changes to the ISCF priorities? Whether in terms of balance of fundamental research / CR&D / commercialisation, or in terms of what the priorities are?
Carole Barron
I agree regarding SIAs, it was hardwork. LEPs are developing Local Industrial Strategies however, these are focused on the IS thematic areas.

The recent Richard Jones NESTA report on the missing £4Bn highlighted the disconnect between business investment in R&D and public investment in terms of location.
