1Cleantech Incubation Europe Working Summit Peterborough, UK 4 June Lynne McGregor Lead Technologist High Value Manufacturing Technology Strategy Board
2Who are we?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.We are sponsored by DIUS – Department for Innovation, Universities and Skills. I want to emphasise this because the misconception persists in some corners that we are part of BERR, which is not the case.But the benefits of being an arm’s length body is that we can work across government and across the whole spectrum of innovation. This is critical because we can only achieve what we are setting out to do through partnerships. Partnerships with business first and foremost – who we see as our customers. But also partnership with a wide range of stakeholders who are already joining with us, or who we need to bring along in future, on this journey of innovation. These include research councils, RDAs, devloved administration, research and technology organisations and a range of other bodies playing in this space. They all have a part to play.
3Cascade from TSB 5 Strategic Focus Areas Accelerating the journey - concept to commercialisationConnecting the innovation landscapeTurning Government action into business opportunityInvesting in theme areas based on global potentialContinuously improving organisational capability
6High Value Manufacturing Strategy Manufacturing is important to the UK:the UK is in the world’s top 10 in terms of GVAUK manufacturing directly employs 2.5m peoplegenerates half of UK exportsaccounts 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 scalesupporting SMEs and connecting them to global players who represent valuable routes to market
7Energy 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 2020UK greenhouse gas emissions must be reduced by 34% by 2020 and 80% by 2050The security of an estimated 85GW indigenous supply requirement in the UK by 2020The 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.
8Key Energy Team focus 2011-2015: Sustainable energy through affordable and secure sources of supplyIntegrate future demand and energy supply into a flexible, secure and resilient energy systemReduce emissions at point of useWe will run targeted investments in these areas8

12Knowledge 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 KTNInformation 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 informationFunding opportunities - advice on Technology Strategy Board Collaborative R& D calls, Knowledge Transfer Partnerships and other sources of funding for innovationPolicy 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
13Knowledge 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.
14SBRIThe 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.
15Collaborative 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 innovationCo-funds partnerships between businesses, and business and academiaHelps create successful new products, processes and services
