Horizon Scanning

The UKCRC Partners and stakeholders are committed to facilitating early and effective involvement with regulatory change by:

  • Promoting consultation and debates on UK regulatory and governance issues
  • Engaging early with European regulatory developments

As a large proportion of new regulation in the UK now comes from Europe, the regulatory horizon-scanning activities have included the sharing of information on legislation emerging from Europe and discussing the likely impact on research. Where appropriate coordination of efforts to inform the development of new regulations is facilitated.
