Technology Strategy Board 2011-2015 vision
25 May 2011
The Institute of Physics (IOP) has welcomed the publication of ‘Concept to Commercialisation’, the Technology Strategy Board’s (TSB) vision for 2011-15.
Dr Robert Kirby-Harris, Chief Executive of IOP, said, “Since its inception in 2008, the TSB has made a significant contribution to promoting innovation across the UK and supporting high-growth companies, including those that depend on physics and physicists.”
“The new strategy for 2011-15 looks set to continue the trend, particularly through the expansion of the Small Business Research Initiative, which promotes innovation in procurement, and the establishment of a network of Technology and Innovation Centres (TICs), aimed at developing centres of excellence in areas of research that offer a global market-lead.”
“Significant economic growth requires technological innovation and that is why I am sure that the Government will continue to support TSB’s mission. The Institute is committed to working with TSB to bring academics and businesses together - thus ensuring the application and communication of the latest physics research for society’s greatest possible benefit.”
