Making science work for development
  • We bring people together
  • We share knowledge
  • We promote opportunities

We bring people together

We work together with other key organisations to improve coordination, identify future research needs and share best practice in research for development.

We share knowledge

Connecting the research with a changing policy landscape provides important context for big decisions and helps create solutions that are relevant and effective.

We promote opportunities

We work to foster the future of research for development by promoting and brokering opportunities for collaboration, funding and jobs.

UKCDS brings together UK government departments and research funders to deliver effective development outcomes
