Scope of the inquiry
The Committee is to conduct a short inquiry into the future of Innovate UK, the agency responsible for driving forward UK innovation. The Committee will examine the implications of the Government’s newly announced plans to incorporate Innovate UK into UK Research and Innovation alongside the Research Councils and Research England. Oral evidence sessions will take place in June, and the Committee intends to write to the Government about this topic shortly thereafter.
Written evidence is not being solicited for this short investigation. If, however, any individual or organisation would like to make a written submission they should, in the first instance, contact the Committee.
