Delivery Plan 2019

SDP cover

Informed by consultations with our research community and beyond, the Delivery Plan sets out our far-reaching ambitions for the next five years.

The UK is rightly seen as a global leader in arts and humanities research, research which deepens our understanding of ourselves and the world we live in. It is also central to our ability to participate in culture in all its various forms, to address complex contemporary challenges and to create economic prosperity in which everyone can share.

Read our Delivery Plan on the UK Research and Innovation Delivery Plans 2019 page.

By turning the ideas in this Delivery Plan into reality, we will continue to enhance the UK’s global distinction in arts and humanities research and the value of that research to culture, society and the economy.
