unstar this property answer text <p>There has been no change in approach to the use of primary and secondary legislation since the General Election. Each piece of legislation is approached within the context of the policy and the existing legislative framework. There is no evidence of an increase in the number of statutory instruments laid since 2010 or since the General Election. Briefing produced by the House of Commons Library (CBP 7438) shows that the number of statutory instruments laid before the House of Commons peaked at 1,885 in the 2005-06 session, compared to 1,378 last session and 540 so far this session.</p> more like this

The Institute provides the physical and electronic infrastructure to facilitate collaboration across the partner universities, and support their safe use of patient and research data for medical research.</li><li>MRC support for 13 stratified medicine research consortia, addressing conditions such as arthritis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, schizophrenia and dementia. The initiative involves 32 UK universities, with each consortia involving around 7 universities.</li></ul><p> </p><p>Working together, the Research Councils have developed an RCUK framework for principles in funding multi-institutional collaborations in research. Further details on the framework can be found here: <a href="http://www.rcuk.ac.uk/funding/principles/" target="_blank">http://www.rcuk.ac.uk/funding/principles/</a>.</p><p>Innovate UK also works with universities to drive translation of university-based research and innovation into commercial applications which tackle disease and life-threatening illnesses.
