As the UK government's innovation agency, Innovate UK aims to inspire and support pioneering UK businesses to create the industries of the future.

View the 2016/17 Delivery Plan

Highlights of the delivery plan include:

  • a new sector focus - that is easier for industry, investors and government to work with
  • changing the frequency and nature of our sector funding competitions - so that they are broader in scope than previously and form a single stream of innovation funding
  • forming a single ‘open’ funding programme -  for applications from any technology or sector
  • enhancing the role of our innovation networks - in providing guidance and support to innovative businesses both nationally and regionally

Innovate UK believe that this approach will make them even more effective in their work to help business develop the science and technology innovations that will grow the UK economy.
