Innovation Platforms

What is an innovation platform?

Global society faces many challenges. By applying technology and innovation we can help to meet these challenges and at the same time open up new opportunities for business. Innovation platforms focus on specific societal challenges where the UK Government is taking action through policy, regulation, procurement or fiscal measures to tackle the problem.

By improving co-ordination between the key players from industry, academia and government, innovation platforms can identify barriers to meeting the challenge, map possible routes to overcoming the barriers and align activities to support innovative solutions. Innovation platforms aim to fundamentally change the ability of UK businesses to provide solutions for the global marketplace, boost UK economic performance, and provide higher quality of public services.

The Technology Strategy Board innovation platforms are:
