Survey to address the role of the UK Government in supporting international research and innovation

Help inform the UK’s Government approach in research and innovation

The Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) has commissioned Technopolis to review the drivers, barriers and benefits associated with international collaboration in research and innovation. The study will also address the role of the government in supporting international research and innovation and is intended to inform the UK Government’s approach in this area.

As part of the study, Technopolis is carrying out a survey addressed to key stakeholders from across the UK research and innovation landscape. Contributions from a range of innovative UK businesses are particularly important for the study and your input into this important exercise would be very much appreciated. Your response would be very welcome, even if you are not currently engaged in international research and innovation.

You are invited to complete the online questionnaire survey on behalf of your organisation using the link below. You will be asked to answer five sets of questions, which should take no more than 15-20 minutes to complete. Upon completing the survey, you will be given the option to provide a more detailed response if you wish to do so.

The responses are anonymous and the results will only be presented in an aggregate form.

To ensure the study consultation reaches the maximum number of stakeholders, the survey is distributed through multiple channels and we apologise in advance for any cross-posting. If you have already received an invitation to this survey by email, please feel free to use either method to respond.
