Our strategy

Concept to Commercialisation

The vision of the Technology Strategy Board is 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.

In 2008 we published our first strategy, under the title Connect and Catalyse, to explain how we would promote and invest in innovation for the benefit of business and the UK between 2008 and 2011 (see Publications>Corporate Documents).

Now, as we start a new funding period, we have carried out a review of our strategic direction and plans, building on the experience of those first few years, and taking into account the circumstances and the challenges and exciting opportunities that lie ahead.

The need for innovation has not reduced – in fact, given the economic situation it is greater than ever. Innovation is a key enabler of growth, and growth is a central government priority.

Our approach to accelerating the pace of innovation over the coming period is captured in our new strategy document, Concept to Commercialisation, published in May 2011. This builds on the approach we have already developed and also sets out new directions; we look forward to working with business and our partners to make these plans a reality.
