The aim of the Innovation Index project is to provide a basis for better policymaking about innovation by developing and deploying significantly improved measures of innovation. The development of the Index is a two-year project; the publication of this pilot version represents a half-way point.
The next 12 months will be used for the gathering of more detailed data, the exploration of a number of new analyses and conceptual questions, the incorporation of feedback received on the pilot, and the extension of the Index to incorporate public sector innovation.
It is envisaged that the Index will then be refreshed with new data each year, providing an ongoing account of the UK's innovation performance. ion in the UK.
