Consultation Response

Structured discussions enabled us to solicit fresh ideas from a wide range of stakeholders and to identify key issues for innovation policy in the UK. This was undertaken in the spirit of 'open innovation' and has taken and responded to as wide a range of input as possible in the time available.

The consultation consisted of two elements: a series of workshops between December 2007 and February 2008 involving face to face discussions and an open consultation through the web. The key themes drawn from the consultations have been summarised and the respondents listed on the web-site. As a result of this process we are developing plans for on-going dialogue.
