10 Driving Innovation What is a technology & innovation centre? Business-focused centre that makes world-leading technical capability available to businesses to solve their technical challenges Access to world-leading technology & expertise Reach into the knowledge base for world-class science Capability to undertake collaborative R&D projects with business Capability to undertake contract research for business Strongly business focused with a professional delivery ethos Create a critical mass of activity Skills development at all levels

11 Driving Innovation Choice of technology areas Potential global markets worth £ billions UK world-leading research capability UK business has ability to exploit the technology and capture a significant share in the UK Centres enable UK to attract and anchor knowledge intensive activities of globally mobile companies Closely aligned with, and essential to achieve, national strategic technology objective Broad Criteria

12 Driving Innovation Choice of areas and partners Screen technology areas against criteria Hold discussions to build the case Two stage selection process Develop the strategic framework Open for business! Outline Process
