The UK Innovation Report benchmarks the UK’s industrial and innovation performance in a global context. It brings together, for the first time in a single place, innovation and value-added indicators in a concise and accessible format.
There is a pressing need to support a swift economic and social recovery from COVID-19. In addition, the UK faces increasing international competition; erosion of market share in key industries; hollowing out of supply chains; the need to reduce carbon emissions; and regional imbalances. Innovation is critical to tackling all of these challenges.
