Innovate UK

Innovate UK is the UK’s innovation agency, We work with people, companies and partner organisations to find and drive the science and technology innovations that will grow the UK economy.

We’re an organisation of around 300 staff, drawn mainly from business. We work across the UK, with a head office in Swindon. Since 2007 we have committed over £1.8 billion to innovation, matched by a similar amount in partner and business funding.

We have helped more than 7,600 organisations with projects estimated to add more than £11.5 billion to the UK economy and create 55,000 extra new jobs.

At the start of this new Spending Review period, the Government has announced its intention to publish a National Innovation Plan.

As the UK’s innovation agency, our new strategy for 2016 to 2020 is a key part of the National Innovation Plan and will be published alongside it.
