Consultation description

Innovation can transform lives. It can help us to face some of our biggest challenges, from energy supply and food security, to demographic change and the delivery of public services. It enables businesses to develop new ideas, products and services, and create new jobs and export opportunities.

We want to know how you think the UK can improve its innovation framework. The survey asks for views on 7 areas:

  • regulation
  • procurement
  • access to finance
  • data
  • challenger businesses
  • national infrastructure
  • intellectual property

Your ideas will help us to develop a National Innovation Plan which we will publish later this year.
