Innovate UK is the UK’s innovation agency. We are a transformative agent for change in the UK economy, now and in the future.

Partner Information
  • Overview

We know that true innovation disrupts. It creates new things – products, processes, services and industries – we don’t even know about yet. It’s our vision at Innovate UK to help the UK economy grow head and shoulders above other nations by driving disruptive innovation – inspiring and supporting pioneering UK businesses to create the industries of the future.

We have a strong business focus and a track record of driving growth by working with companies to de-risk, enable and support innovation – putting them in a stronger position to attract investment and facilitating access to investors, collaborators, customers and export markets.

As we start a new Spending Review period, we will publish a new strategy that describes how we will work towards our goals during the years 2016 to 2020.
Meanwhile, this Delivery Plan covers the first year of this new phase – the financial year 2016/17.

It outlines how we will continue to find, support and grow innovative businesses while beginning some major shifts in the way we work to drive innovation, such as:
•  a new sector grouping approach to our programmes

•  simplifying our support for innovation

•  new activities to deliver on our strategic  5-point plan
