Felicity Burch, CBI Director of Innovation, said:
“Business backs the Government's ambition to be a science superpower. The creation of ARIA is a strong signal that government is placing a big bet on science and innovation success. But we now need to go all in. This includes vital funding for UKRI and for association to Horizon Europe.
