RCUK – Impacts: People and skills

Impacts: People and Skills is the 5th in a series of publications from RCUK which highlight the impact of research and higher education in the UK.It brings together a range of case studies from a variety of disciplines.

David Willetts, Universities and Science Minister, said: “This report by Research Councils UK highlights the critical importance of cutting-edge research in a knowledge economy. It is great that over 60% of Research Council UK Doctoral graduates take their skills into the wider economy, many in the areas we need for growth – life sciences, advanced manufacturing and low carbon technologies. I am therefore delighted that RCUK has taken this initiative and I hope that this publication will encourage our future scientists to continue this tradition.”
