star this property answer text <p>The Government recognises the importance of R&amp;D to help transform the steel sector so it can play a vital role within our modern Industrial Strategy. Increasing investment in R&amp;D was one of the key recommendations in our 2017 <em>Future capacities and capabilities of the UK steel industry</em> study (<a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/uk-steel-industry-future-market-opportunities" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/uk-steel-industry-future-market-opportunities</a>), which sets out how the industry can increase its profitability and sustainability.</p><p>The Government’s priority remains ensuring that the Withdrawal Agreement is ratified. This would ensure that UK entities’ right to participate in the Research Fund for Coal and Steel – including bidding for funding – would be unaffected until the end of 2020.</p><p>We are considering options for supporting R&amp;D in steel beyond 2020 and will continue to work with the sector, unions and Devolved Administrations to develop a viable long-term solution. The Government will decide on science and innovation expenditure, including on R&amp;D for steel, in the next Spending Review.</p>
