Cleantech Incubation Europe Working Summit Peterborough, UK 4 June 2013 Lynne McGregor Lead Technologist High Value Manufacturing Technology Strategy Board
The Technology Strategy Board is working to drive UK economic growth by making this country a global leader in innovation. Our purpose is to accelerate innovation. We help UK business to innovate faster and more effectively than would otherwise be possible, using our expertise, connections and funding to: Enable collaborations and partnerships between businesses, researchers and governments; and help business to create innovative products and services which will meet market needs, tackle the challenges of our time and build the economy of tomorrow. Who are we?
Accelerating the journey - concept to commercialisation Connecting the innovation landscape Turning Government action into business opportunity Investing in theme areas based on global potential Continuously improving organisational capability Cascade from TSB 5 Strategic Focus Areas
Investing in priority areas based on potential
Technology Readiness Level
High Value Manufacturing Strategy Manufacturing is important to the UK: the UK is in the world’s top 10 in terms of GVA UK manufacturing directly employs 2.5m people generates half of UK exports accounts for three quarters of business R&D. A landscape study, carried out in 2011, enabled us to develop a strategy to support and encourage those competencies which would enable the UK Manufacturing to compete globally, including: HVM Catapult to assist innovators to demonstrate new products and processes at commercial scale supporting SMEs and connecting them to global players who represent valuable routes to market
Energy Supply Strategy Focuses on business opportunities that arise from central government policy and legal requirements. –In the UK, 15% of total energy must come from renewable sources by 2020 –UK greenhouse gas emissions must be reduced by 34% by 2020 and 80% by 2050 –The security of an estimated 85GW indigenous supply requirement in the UK by 2020 –The need to provide affordable energy for all. Create business opportunities through addressing the ‘trilemma’ of energy security, affordability and sustainability. Ensure that innovative UK companies understand the opportunities created by the rapidly changing global energy system. Ensure companies have the help needed to develop new products and services, enhance and develop energy sector supply chains that drive growth in the UK economy.
Key Energy Team focus 2011-2015: Sustainable energy through affordable and secure sources of supply Integrate future demand and energy supply into a flexible, secure and resilient energy system Reduce emissions at point of use We will run targeted investments in these areas

Knowledge Transfer Network Connecting industry, research organisations with government, finance and policy: Networking - frequent opportunities to network with other businesses and academics through targeted events, meetings and Special Interest Groups organised by the KTN Information and news - free access to on-line services such as reports, newsletters, webinars/e-training, events diaries, e-conferencing and collaboration tools and general sector/application specific information Funding opportunities - advice on Technology Strategy Board Collaborative R& D calls, Knowledge Transfer Partnerships and other sources of funding for innovation Policy and regulation - a communications route between their community, Government and EU, giving members the opportunity to influence policies and regulation in the UK and abroad. Visit _connect to network, register and share knowledge
Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs) Provide businesses opportunity to work in partnership with an academic institution: –to obtain knowledge and expertise to which they currently have no access, –to address their business challenges and embed sustainable innovation. –knowledge sought is embedded into the company through a project or projects undertaken by a recently qualified person (known as the KTP Associate) recruited specifically to work on that project. Grant funding depends on the size of the company: –Typically a small or medium sized enterprise might contribute around a third of the project costs with the remainder being paid as grant. –Currently average project costs are around £60, 000.
SBRI The SBRI programme uses the power of government procurement to drive innovation. It provides opportunities for innovative companies to engage with the public sector to solve specific problems. Competitions for new technologies and ideas are run on specific topics and aim to engage a broad range of organisations. SBRI enables the public sector to engage with industry during the early stages of development, supporting projects through the stages of feasibility and prototyping.
Collaborative R&D and other targeted competitions We hold frequent competitions for collaborative R&D project funding, in a wide range of areas covering specific technical or societal challenges. Encourages businesses and researchers to work together on innovation Co-funds partnerships between businesses, and business and academia Helps create successful new products, processes and services Collaborative R&D
