Protecting and promoting research in the UK and EU

We fight for fair and favourable legislation for both the practice and business of research. We engage with regulators, ministers and parliamentarians, to protect and promote the role of research as a force for democracy, commerce and society.

We work closely with MRS members and Company Partners, as well as with a range of other trade associations to ensure our representations are accurate, timely and effective. In Europe, we work with EFAMRO, the European Research Federation - the voice of the European sector - to engage with the European Union and the Council of Europe.
