Report Title: Enhancing Collaboration Creating Value: Business Interaction with the UK
For this report the research team interviewed seventy-one top-level sources from both large and small firms, universities, government/regulators and charities to explore the challenges and opportunities concerning the creation of value through collaboration. Focusing on four different sectors – construction, energy, pharmaceuticals and the converged creative, digital and IT industry – the review reveals the different innovation needs within and across these industries and highlights the main challenges to collaborative innovation that the UK faces to be competitive in the modern global knowledge economy.
This report is part of a series of reports as a result of a task force set up in 2011. The Enhancing Value Task Force was launched by the Council for Industry and Higher Education (CIHE) in conjunction with the UK~IRC to answer the question: how do we make the most of the UK research base?
