Director, Innovation Policy
Greg was the Director of Innovation Policy.
Greg led Nesta's Innovation Policy theme, driving delivery of our current strategy to make innovation policy smarter, more inclusive and fit for the future while raising the profile of our work and thinking about what comes next.
Greg joined Nesta from BEIS, where he was Deputy Director for Innovation Policy, responsible for increasing the R&D intensity of the UK, science fiscal events and major programmes such as the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund. He is most interested in increasing the impact of innovation policy and making sure it supports the priorities and values of citizens.
Before BEIS, Greg was a Deputy Director in the Cabinet Office working to make government more efficient and effective and he has spent time at Eurasia Group, KPMG, the Foreign & Commonwealth Office and RAND Europe.
