Technology Strategy Board
Who are we?
The Technology Strategy Board is working to drive UK economic
growth by making this country a global leader in innovation.
Our purpose is to accelerate innovation. We help UK business to
innovate faster and more effectively than would otherwise be
possible, using our expertise, connections and funding to:
• Enable collaborations and partnerships between businesses, researchers
and governments;
• and help business to create innovative products and services which will
meet market needs, tackle the challenges of our time and build the
economy of tomorrow.
Investing in priority areas based on potential
Technology Readiness Level
High Value Manufacturing Strategy
Manufacturing is important to the UK:
• the UK is in the world’s top 10 in terms of GVA
• UK manufacturing directly employs 2.5m people
• generates half of UK exports
• accounts for three quarters of business R&D.
A landscape study, carried out in 2011, enabled us
to develop a strategy to support and encourage
those competencies which would enable the UK
Manufacturing to compete globally, including:
• HVM Catapult to assist innovators to
demonstrate new products and processes at
commercial scale
• supporting SMEs and connecting them to global
players who represent valuable routes to market
Energy Supply Strategy
• Focuses on business opportunities that arise from central government
policy and legal requirements.

In the UK, 15% of total energy must come from renewable sources by 2020
UK greenhouse gas emissions must be reduced by 34% by 2020 and 80% by 2050
The security of an estimated 85GW indigenous supply requirement in the UK by 2020
The need to provide affordable energy for all
•. Create business opportunities through addressing the ‘trilemma’
of energy security, affordability and sustainability.
•
Ensure that innovative UK companies understand the
opportunities created by the rapidly changing global energy
system.
• Ensure companies have the help needed to develop new
products and services, enhance and develop energy sector
supply chains that drive growth in the UK economy.
Key Energy Team focus 2011-2015:
Sustainable energy through affordable and
secure sources of supply
Integrate future demand and energy supply
into a flexible, secure and resilient energy
system
Reduce emissions at point of use
We will run targeted investments in
these areas

Knowledge Transfer
Network
Connecting industry, research organisations with government, finance
and policy:
•
Networking - frequent opportunities to network with other businesses and academics
through targeted events, meetings and Special Interest Groups organised by the KTN
•
Information and news - free access to on-line services such as reports, newsletters,
webinars/e-training, events diaries, e-conferencing and collaboration tools and general
sector/application specific information
•
Funding opportunities - advice on Technology Strategy Board Collaborative R& D calls,
Knowledge Transfer Partnerships and other sources of funding for innovation
•
Policy and regulation - a communications route between their community, Government
and EU, giving members the opportunity to influence policies and regulation in the UK
and abroad.

Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs)
• Provide businesses opportunity to work in partnership with an
academic institution:
– to obtain knowledge and expertise to which they currently have no
access,
– to address their business challenges and embed sustainable innovation.
– knowledge sought is embedded into the company through a project or
projects undertaken by a recently qualified person (known as the KTP
Associate) recruited specifically to work on that project.
• Grant funding depends on the size of the company:
– Typically a small or medium sized enterprise might contribute around a
third of the project costs with the remainder being paid as grant.
– Currently average project costs are around £60, 000.
SBRI
• The SBRI programme uses the power of government
procurement to drive innovation. It provides opportunities
for innovative companies to engage with the public sector to
solve specific problems.
• Competitions for new technologies and ideas are run on
specific topics and aim to engage a broad range of
organisations.
• SBRI enables the public sector to engage with industry
during the early stages of development, supporting projects
through the stages of feasibility and prototyping.
Collaborative R&D and other
targeted competitions
Collaborative R&D
We hold frequent competitions for collaborative R&D project
funding, in a wide range of areas covering specific technical or
societal challenges.
• Encourages businesses and researchers to work together on
innovation
• Co-funds partnerships between businesses, and business and
academia
• Helps create successful new products, processes and services
