Consultation on the development of an Innovation Strategy for Wales
This consultation is now closed.
Innovation is one of the key drivers for economic growth and job creation.
"Innovation Union", one of the flagship initiatives of "Europe 2020", places innovation at the heart of emerging European strategy. It sets out a plan to ensure innovative ideas are turned into products and services that create growth and jobs.
We believe it is vital organisations in Wales invest in and are supported to carry out:
- Research and Development (R&D)
- adopt new technologies
- develop new products and processes
- protect and commercialise intellectual property
- and embrace innovative business models.
Science for Wales was launched in March 2012. It identified the lack of a current complementary innovation strategy to deal with the commercial exploitation of R&D and the promotion of innovation.
In order to develop an Innovation Strategy, we asked for your views on how we could improve the innovation performance of Wales.
