Innovation Nation – The UK SME Innovation Survey 

Supporting innovative SMEs in the UK

Here at GovGrant we engage with businesses to find the best ways to reward innovation in the UK. We aim to influence policy by representing the innovative businesses we work with. As part of this ongoing dialogue, and at this critical time for SME businesses in the UK, we carried our Innovation Nation survey 2020.

Innovation Nation
Placing innovation at the heart of the UK’s economic rebuild



Our survey collected the views of over 500 SME decision-makers across seven different industry sectors. Our research confirmed:

85% consider innovation an important part of Covid-19 recovery
15% strongly agree the government is doing enough to support it
0% said they had no strategy in place to track their IP
43% do not have a board member responsible for commercialisation of IP
