Science Superpower

A practical policy programme to transform science and innovation in the UK

The Science Superpower Programme explores how ministers can realise their ambitions for the UK to be a “science superpower”.

It fills a major gap in the current policy debate by bringing together some of the finest scientific minds with leading policymakers to explore the strategic challenges, opportunities and trade-offs that the government and scientific community face. Building on Onward’s successful work on levelling up and net zero, it is not only generating new analysis, but will put forward bold ideas to rapidly scale, accelerate and commercialise science and technology – and diffuse innovation throughout the economy.
