Nesta – The Innovation Agenda

The innovation agenda and the UK’s appetite for change – The last few years have been characterised by the UK public’s appetite for change; from Brexit and the national agenda to global movements around climate change, inequality and health. People are open to innovation, but is the UK getting it right?

At a time of great technological and social change, we conducted a UK-wide study on the public’s attitude to innovation, what they think the priorities on the subject should be and how they think about the future.

The result is a set of specific recommendations for how the government can improve how it invests in innovation and how it can involve people in the process.
