This document summarises a roundtable discussion convened by the Foundation for Science and Technology with Fellows of the national academies for Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales to inform thinking into how the devolved nations can continue to build their research base and capacity, foster innovation and engage with the opportunities arising from the 2020 UK R&D roadmap. The role and contribution of QR funding and EU structural and regional funds in supporting the research base were also explored.

The information gathered will form part of the Celtic Academies Alliance ongoing programme of work for 2020/21 with the aim of supporting a thriving research and innovation culture across the devolved nations.
