On 22 July 2021 the UK Government published the UK Innovation Strategy, setting out its vision to make the UK a global hub for innovation by 2035 and to turn the UK into a science superpower.

The Innovation Strategy comes at a time of significant change. The UK continues to grapple with the consequences of Covid-19 and has experienced its largest economic disruption since the Second World War.

This briefing note usefully summarises the Strategy and pinpoints what it might mean for university and business collaboration.
