RoRI announces partners and first wave of projects
Launched in September 2019, the Research on Research Institute (RoRI) is an international consortium of research funders, academics, research organizations and technologists which aims to champion transformative research on research systems, concepts, cultures, careers and decision-making. Following an intense period of consultation and co-design, we are excited to unveil our first wave of projects, which will run for the remainder of RoRI's pilot phase (until autumn 2021).

We are also delighted to announce our partners, who will be collaborating in the design and delivery of these projects.
The Missing £4 Billion - new report
In the UK, as in other countries, geographical imbalances in economic performance are exacerbated by regional imbalances in R&D spending.

A new report for the innovation foundation Nesta, co-authored by Richard Jones (University of Manchester and Associate Director, RoRI) and Tom Forth (Open Data Institute Leeds) outlines 12 recommendations for “levelling up” prosperity and harnessing R&D to redress longstanding regional economic inequality. The report is available free to download here.

Alongside the report, produced in association with RoRI, the authors have developed the Design the Future visualisation tool which lets you experiment with different R&D priorities, and shows you the effect this could have on different places across the UK.

A kinder research culture is possible
RoRI was featured in Nature: "RoRI will help to probe some of the causes of distress, and suggest solutions. Now, other funders and research-management societies must join the mission: ultimately, strength in numbers is what will compel universities to take action."
