Clean growth and infrastructure brochure: how Innovate UK and its partners drive innovation
Innovate UK has published a brochure showing how it and its partners drive innovation and help businesses in clean growth and infrastructure.
The document outlines the impact that the business support network has had including significant investments in the UK and support for overseas projects.
Innovate UK‚Äôs business support partners include the Knowledge Transfer Network, Enterprise Europe Network, the Catapult Network, Innovation and Knowledge Centres and the Urban Living Partnership.¬† The latter is a partnership between Innovate UK and seven research councils to support business, academics and city governments in applying a ‚Äòwhole city‚Äô approach to the challenges faced by urban areas.
The report also outlines the ¬£1.7bn that is being invested through the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund (ISCF).¬† Clean growth is one of the government‚Äôs four grand challenges within its industrial strategy; a number of specific ISCF challenges come under this banner and they will be supported by Innovate UK and KTN with funding competitions and events.¬† These include:
- Prospering from the energy revolution
- Transforming construction
- Transforming food production
(In the news items linked below, you can see details of some events that KTN has organised this year to support these three challenges.)
