This study by Rand Europe presents a review of international evidence on best practice in organisational design of research and innovation funding bodies. It was commissioned to inform the design of UK Research & Innovation (UKRI) and has contributed to decisions around governance structures and strategy.

The study covers:

  • evidence relating to good practice in establishing strong and accountable organisations and governance structures; and
  • lessons from the strengths and weaknesses of different organisational models for research and innovation.

The initial search for evidence covered both research and innovation funding organisations, as well as organisations in public, private and third sectors that work in the field of research and innovation. The analysis has a UK context, but the study did not seek to make specific recommendations about the design and governance of UKRI.
