Title: Connect and Catalyse a strategy for UK business innovation


1
Connect and Catalyse a strategy for UK business
innovation
David Way Director of Operations
Innovation Nation Roadshow Bristol Zoo 29 July
2008
2
What I am going to cover
  • Our strategy for business innovation
  • Challenge-led innovation
  • Technology-inspired innovation
  • Innovation climate
  • How and what we deliver and how to engage

3
The Technology Strategy Board is A national
body supporting business innovation for
business benefit for
economic growth
for quality of life
4
  • Our vision for the UK to be a global leader in
    innovation and a magnet for innovative
    businesses, where technology is applied rapidly,
    effectively and sustainably to create wealth and
    enhance quality of life.

To deliver, partnership is key

7
  • Challenge-led innovation

8

And the challenges have never been greater
9

Challenge-led innovation
  • Key areas
  • Medicines healthcare
  • Energy generation supply
  • Transport
  • Environmental sustainability
  • Built environment
  • Creative industries
  • High value services

10
Innovation Platforms
  • A new approach to delivering innovation
  • A sharp focus on a specific issue
  • Designed to address major policy and societal
    challenges, by
  • understanding how Government may use regulation
    and procurement to address each challenge
  • engaging with business and the research community
    to identify responses - and the development needs
  • supporting programmes to deliver innovative
    solutions

11

Challenge-led innovation
  • Innovation platforms
  • Assisted living
  • Intelligent transport systems and services
  • Low carbon vehicles
  • Low impact buildings
  • Network security

12
  • Technology-inspired innovation

13

Technology-inspired innovation
  • Key technology areas
  • Framework of areas to focus on
  • Focus developed through consultation with
    business and government partners
  • Each area prioritised by high value opportunities
    for resource investment

14
Key technology areas
  • Advanced materials
  • Bioscience
  • Electronics, photonics and electrical systems
  • Information and communication technologies
  • High value manufacturing
  • Nanotechnology

15
  • The innovation climate

16
Knowledge Transfer Networks
  • National networks in a field of technology or
    business application
  • Funded by the Technology Strategy Board
  • Bringing together business, research bodies and
    the finance community
  • to stimulate innovation through exchange of
    knowledge and expertise.
  • Total KTN members over 30,000

Knowledge Transfer Partnerships
  • High calibre, recently-qualified individuals
    placed into businesses to work on innovation
    projects
  • Exchanges knowledge spreads technical and
    business skills
  • Brings new expertise and real benefits to
    companies
  • Provides business experience for graduates
  • Stimulates business-focused education and
    research in institutions

19
Benefits of KTPs
  • On average, during 2006-7, each 1 million of
    public investment in KTP delivered
  • 43 new jobs created
  • 190 company staff trained
  • 2.97m increase in company annual pre-tax profits

20
How to engage with us
21
We deliver our strategy primarily through
  • Collaborative RD Competitions
  • Knowledge Transfer Networks
  • Knowledge Transfer Partnerships

23
Criteria for investment
  • UK capacity to develop and exploit the technology
  • The right potential for impact in the right time
    frame
  • The size of the global market opportunity
  • A clear role for the Technology Strategy Board to
    add value

24
The Ideal Project (though there is no such thing!)
  • A business driven consortium with an innovative,
    yet clear commercial opportunity that they have
    the capacity to develop and exploit.
  • The development of realistic project deliverables
    and applications that open up significant market
    opportunities for the consortium within growth
    markets.
  • A sustainable project that reaches beyond the
    consortium to benefit the wider market, the
    environment and society and that represents good
    value for money, yet an element of risk.

Gateway questions
  • Does the application align with the specific
    priority?
  • Current Calls
  • Creative Industries Feasibility 15k 75
  • - Fast Track 50k 50
  • Assisted Living Smart Care Distributed
    Environment 5m for 5-10 projects.

27
Gateway questions
  • Does the Technology Strategy Board funding add
    value?
  • To demonstrate this applicants need to provide
    evidence that
  • success in the competition will increase the
    total amount of money the consortium partners
    spend on Research Development in the UK
  • and either
  • why the consortium partners are not funding the
    project themselves or
  • why the Technology Strategy Board funding would
    allow them to undertake the project differently,
    and why this would be beneficial to the UK.

28
Assessment Criteria
EoI Criteria
Question 1 What technical approach will be
adopted and how will the project be
managed? Question 2 - What is innovative about
this project? Question 4 What is the size
of the market opportunities that this project
might open up? Question 6 What are the
expected quantified commercial benefits and what
is the timescale over which these will be
realised?
  • Question 1 What technical approach will be

    how will this be identified and managed?
  • Question 6 What are the expected quantified
    commercial benefits and what is the timescale

    benefits is the project expected to deliver to
    those outside the consortium and over what
    timescale?
  • Question 8 - What are the risks (technical,
    commercial and environmental) to project success?
    How will the business strategy of the consortium,
    the technical approach and project management
    help to mitigate these risks?

In summary
  • We are looking to invest in collaborative RD
    projects in our strategic priority areas, that
    lead to wealth creation in the UK, with the best
    team
  • We welcome academic partners in projects where
    these add real value
  • Knowledge Transfer Networks are a good way to
    learn about and influence what we do
  • A Knowledge Transfer Partnership may suit you
    better for knowledge exchange
