Science and innovation evidence project summary 2013

  1. 1. Global leadership in science and innovation: introduction to the project on international comparative evidence on UK performance September 2013
  2. 2. 2 Comparative evidence on UK science and innovation performance: context • On many measures, the UK is a global leader in science and innovation and their contribution to the economy • However, areas of comparative weakness exist, or could emerge, that potentially put that leadership under threat • In this context, BIS Knowledge and Innovation Group is undertaking a programme of work and engagement to co- develop a shared vision (with the higher education, science, research, innovation and business communities) for the future of the UK’s innovation infrastructure • The comparative evidence project (see following slide) will provide input (not recommendations) into this broader programme by January 2013
  3. 3. BIS project on comparative evidence on the UK’s science and innovation performance Exam question Initial key issues to explore Scope and timing "What does international comparative evidence tell us about the key challenges we need to address in order to maintain and develop the UK's global leadership position in science and innovation?" • What are the aspects of the science and innovation system that will be most important to the UK’s economic success in the next 10-20 years? • What can we learn from other countries who are currently leaders in science and innovation? • What hypotheses about the UK’s strengths and weaknesses should we investigate further? • How should we measure global leadership, or performance, in science and innovation? • Focus on evidence gathering, analysis and synthesis, not immediate recommendations or prescriptions • Starting with a whole-systems approach to capture inputs, outputs and outcomes; scope narrowed down later • Synthesis and report back in January 2014 FormoreinformationcontactTera.Allas@bis.gsi.gov.ukorDavid.Wilson@bis.gsi.gov.uk
