To support innovation we work with businesses of every size from pre start-up and early stage businesses to large multi-nationals, with the research base, and with many public sector organisations.
Funding & Support What does your business need to innovate?
We work with people, companies and partner organisations to find and drive the science and technology innovations that will grow the UK economy.
We’re an organisation of around 300 staff, drawn mainly from business. We work across the UK, with a head office in Swindon.
With a strong business focus, we drive growth by working with companies to de-risk, enable and support innovation. To do this, we work to:
Since 2007 we have committed over £1.8 billion to innovation, matched by a similar amount in partner and business funding. We have helped more than 7,600 organisations with projects estimated to add more than £11.5 billion to the UK economy and create 55,000 extra new jobs.
At the start of this new Spending Review period, the Government has announced its intention to publish a National Innovation Plan. As the UK’s innovation agency, our new strategy for 2016 to 2020 is a key part of the National Innovation Plan and will be published alongside it.
Our delivery plan sets out the funding competitions we plan to run each year to give businesses advanced notice.
In thewe explained how we will find, support and develop innovative businesses to speed up economic growth. It also outlined some changes in the way we work:
Our growing, ageing population and the burden of diseases are among our greatest societal challenges. We need new approaches to healthcare, food production and quality. Innovate UK supports business in finding solutions to these challenges.
Innovation in health and life sciences is enabled by new technologies from bioscience and medical research, and by expertise in engineering and physical sciences. Many see the 21st century as ‘the age of biology’. New developments in how we understand and work with biological systems will open up important opportunities.
