The UK’s innovation landscape has been steadily maturing since the launch of the R&D scheme more than two decades ago. But after a challenging few years, innovation teams face new obstacles as economic turbulence undermines already-squeezed budgets. And adding to the pressure, the announcements made in the Chancellor’s Autumn Statement risk seriously derailing the R&D scheme’s steady momentum.

In this report, the inaugural UK Innovation Barometer 2023, we examine the current state of the UK’s innovation landscape, as well as considering the various reforms that have the potential to influence businesses operating across the technology, manufacturing, food & beverage, construction, financial services, and pharmaceutical industries.

In order to stimulate greater innovation across the UK’s landscape and compete at the highest level globally, the Government must adopt a coordinated approach that addresses innovation, productivity and sustainability together.

In order for the UK to reach the level of innovation required to stimulate real growth, businesses and universities must work more closely together.
