The Enhancing Value Task Force was launched in 2011 by the Council for Industry and Higher Education (now NCUB) in conjunction with the UK-Innovation Research Centre (UK-IRC) to answer the question: how do we make the most of the UK’s research base?

This was the task force’s first status report setting out the issues, challenges and questions for the task force. The report summarised the approach, the people involved, the questions that were tackled, the three phases of the taskforce and a breakdown of the funding.
