Mark Glover 12 th January 2011 Driving Innovation The Technology Strategy Board September 2012 Tim Just (delivered by Paul Febvre)
Purpose of Presentation Introduce the Technology Strategy Board aims Provide information regarding the innovation toolsets Introduce the TSB role in Space Introduce the Satellite Applications Catapult
TSB vision is for the UK to be a global leader in innovation How can we help UK business bring new ideas and technologies faster to market?
What do the TSB aim to do? We help strengthen the global competitive position of our leading businesses We identify and grow sectors and businesses with the capacity to become the best in the world We nurture the businesses that can succeed in the growth sectors of tomorrow We consider…. Can the UK do it?Is there a large market opportunity? Is the idea ‘ready’?Can we make a difference?
Innovation Challenges Business investment is too low and too late Technical and financial risks need to be mitigated The time for financial return is too long for many players Innovation disrupts value chains and business models New partnerships are required to build new supply chains Investment and innovation is required at multiple points Longer term trends not visible to all players Impact and opportunities from emerging technologies & policies Innovation infrastructure complex and inefficient Fragmented and difficult to navigate Government does not make best use of its levers Procurement, regulation, standardisation, fiscal incentives
TSB strategic focus Accelerating the journey between concept and commercialisation Investing in priority areas based on potential Connecting the innovation landscape Turning government action into business opportunity Continuously improving our capability
The Toolset Range of Tools with different objectives / characteristics Collaborative R&D Smart Launchpad
9 Budget Distribution between Tools Challenge Driven Thematic Programme SBRI Catapult (TIC) Responsive Smart(Grant for R&D) Eurostar KTP KTN NB. Our programmes attract significant levels of funding from other organisations, both public and private sector, which is not included in the above.

Using government procurement to drive innovation. Enables public sector organisations to procure new technologies faster and with managed risk. Provides paid contracts for the critical stage of product development Relaunched 2009 –18 Government Departments engaged –Major interest from other public sector bodies –42 competitions –1630 applications –519 contracts (>60% new companies) Innovation driven by procurement: SBRI
Closing the gap between concept and commercialisation The vision: a network of world-leading centres Bringing research and business together – accelerating commercialisation A £200m investment in the future of the UK economy - for the long term
Choice of Technology Areas Broad Criteria –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 objectives
All Catapult Centres announced : High Value Manufacturing Cell Therapy Offshore Renewable Energy Satellite Applications Connected Digital Economy Future cities Transport systems and integration https://catapult.innovateuk.org/
Driving Innovation Technology Strategy Board Driving Innovation TSB role in Space Satellite Applications Catapult Tim Just Lead Technologist
The UK space sector contributes £7.5 billion to the economyDirect employment is 24,90080,000 jobs are supported by space activities57% of staff are graduatesValue added per employee is three times the UK averageThe UK space industry is six times more R&D intensive than the UK economy as a whole The UK space sector has been growing at some 9% pa, and the UK has a 7% share of the global market By 2020, predicted to be worth £14.2 billion per year and supporting 115,000 more jobs The Space Economy in the UK
UK Space Innovation and Growth Strategy Global market forecast to be worth £400 billion by 2030 Strategy to capture 10% of market and create over 100,000 jobs in the UK ‘applications and services using Space data will be one of the most important elements for delivering growth’
National Space Technology Strategy and Roadmaps Based on the IGS recommendations Detailed analysis of sector requirements and capabilities Divided into five areas: –Sensors –Telecoms –Robotics & Exploration –Access to Space –Position, Navigation & Timing
UK Space Agency and TSB roles in space Determine Policy Coordinate Govt activity Generate Growth Represent Internationally Delivery Drive Innovation Cross-sectorial UK Industry Promotion Technical & Management Expertise Collaboration & Coordination
National Space Technology Programme £10m new funding for a dedicated national Space Technology Strategy Guided by UK Space Agency Strategy and National Space Technology Strategy Activities orientated to support innovation including the space cluster in Harwell Range of mechanisms proposed, flagship and pathfinder projects, horizon scanning and demonstration activities
TSB working with the European Space Agency Advanced Research in Telecommunications Systems (ARTES) –Development, qualification and demonstration of products and applications for Satellite Telecommunications Integrated Applications Promotion –Development of operational services through the combination of different space systems GNSS Evolution –Technology development for future satellite navigation systems Technology Transfer –Supporting the ESA Business Incubator Centre at Harwell and wider Technology Transfer programme
