Innovate UK is the UK’s innovation agency. We help UK businesses to grow through innovation.

This action plan sets out how we will do that by focusing our activities in 5 strategic theme areas:

  • future economy
  • growth at scale
  • global opportunities
  • innovation ecosystem
  • government levers

It also outlines the strong foundations that underpin the support we give for innovation:

  • UK science and research
  • design
  • responsible innovation
  • innovation talent and skills
  • equality, diversity and inclusion
  • place and levelling up

Update: February 2023

In November 2021, Innovate UK published its 5-year plan for action, which set out how we will help businesses to grow and thrive, and contribute to the UK becoming a global hub for innovation by 2035.

As an update we recently produced a blog and a ‘lite’ version of the plan.

Read our ‘1 year on: plan for action 2021 to 2025’ document to find out our approach and highlights so far.
