Innovate UK is the UK’s national innovation agency. We support business-led innovation in all sectors, technologies and UK regions. We help businesses grow through the development and commercialisation of new products, processes, and services, supported by an outstanding innovation ecosystem that is agile, inclusive, and easy to navigate.
What we do
- We help companies, through three strands of activity:
- inspire: to make the opportunity visible and compelling
- involve: to bring relevant organisations and people together
- invest: to convene the resources needed, including our own.
- We do this in our five strategic theme areas and through the six strong foundations that underpin all our activities.
- We help companies access the expertise and equipment they need, build the partnerships that will help them go faster, and fund the innovation work through grants or loans.
- We support the best ideas from business, as determined through free and fair competition.
