Innovate UK is part of UK Research and Innovation, a non-departmental public body funded by a grant-in-aid from the UK government.   We drive productivity and economic growth by supporting businesses to develop and realise the potential of new ideas, including those from the UK’s world-class research base.



We’re an organisation of almost 500 staff, drawn mainly from business. We work across the UK, with a head office in Swindon.



Our responsibilities



With a strong business focus, we drive growth by working with companies to de-risk, enable and support innovation.  We connect businesses to the partners, customers and investors that can help them turn ideas into commercially successful products and services and business growth.



We fund business and research collaborations to accelerate innovation and drive business investment into research and development.  Our support is available to businesses across all economic sectors, value chains and UK regions.
