Innovation Challenge Areas

The Council has recently reviewed its programme and is focusing on four themes that could enhance innovation in Wales:

  • Public service-led innovation – to increase innovation in public service delivery, and give greater scope for business to generate innovative solutions for the public sector.

  • Collaboration – to improve Wales’ share of UK and European grant funding; to promote Wales as a connected and valued partner for collaborative innovation projects; and to promote collaboration across sectors within Wales.

  • Wellbeing of future generations – to look at the trends and patterns that will influence how we live, work and learn in a future Wales;

  • National Innovation Body (NIB) – to build upon the potential identified for a new NIB and provide a detailed analysis of the scope and potential that exists to establish an entity capable of driving innovation and creativity across public and private sectors;

Previous work streams included Innovation Centres and Innovation Metrics.
