  • Total net expenditure on R&D and knowledge transfer activities reached £12.9 billion in 2018 and represented 0.6% of gross domestic product (GDP), unchanged since 2017.
  • UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), which includes the UK's seven research councils, contributed the most to net expenditure on R&D and knowledge transfer activities in 2018, at £4.9 billion, 38% of the total.
  • In constant prices (adjusted for inflation), civil net expenditure on R&D and knowledge transfer activities (excluding EU R&D budget contributions) increased by 21.0% to £10.4 billion in 2018, up from £8.6 billion in 2007.
  • Historically, civil departmental R&D has been concentrated in a small number of departments, with the top three spending 82% of the total in 2018, following a similar pattern to recent years.
  • Since 2007, defence net expenditure on R&D decreased by 36.6% in constant prices to £1.6 billion in 2018.
  • In 2018 UK government departments' net expenditure on R&D into health accounted for 22% of the total and has remained at a similar proportion over the last decade.
