S5W-06249: Liz Smith (Mid Scotland and Fife)

Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 17 January 2017

To ask the Scottish Government for what reason its report, SCOTLAND CAN DO - Boosting Scotland’s Innovation Performance, makes no reference to UK Research and Innovation, Innovate UK or Research Councils UK.

Answered by: Paul Wheelhouse 26 January 2017

Scotland CAN DO - Boosting Scotland's Innovation Performance is a high level Action Plan that has been developed through the Scotland CAN DO Innovation Forum. A wide range of industry and academic partners, including Innovate UK and other UK organisations such as Nesta and the Big Innovation Centre, are members of the Forum.

We will work with partners and stakeholders over the coming months to deliver the actions necessary to boost Scotland's innovation performance.
