Research Prioritisation Action Plans

Action Plans have been developed for each of the 14 Priority Areas. The Action Plans represent the detailed blueprint for actions to be taken by funding Departments and agencies to re-align the majority of competitive pubic research funding around the Priority Areas over the next five years.

Each Action Plan includes a vision, key objectives and specific actions along, with timelines and identifies those responsible for leading and supporting delivery of the action. In addition, wider eco-system or framework conditions that need to be addressed are identified, such as issues relating to the regulatory environment, skills, underpinning technologies and infrastructure as they are relevant to each Priority Area, to allow investment in the priority area yield the optimum return.


Action Plans will remain live and evolve over time to ensure they can respond to real time market developments and opportunities.
