In March 2012, our strategy for science, Science for Wales, laid out a plan for a step-change in Wales' academic performance across the sciences.
It recommended a new, forward-looking innovation strategy for Wales to deal with the commercial exploitation of Research and Development (R&D) and the promotion of innovation.
In April 2012, we launched a Call for Evidence inviting stakeholders to identify ways in which innovation could help improve the well being and economic prospects of the people of Wales. This yielded an extremely wide-ranging and constructive set of thoughtful responses from stakeholders.
In distilling this thinking into a strategy we were advised by a task and finish group of experienced representatives from a range of organisations, including small and large businesses, universities and UK innovation organisations.
The result is Innovation Wales, which introduces some important departures in the way the Welsh Government and its partners in innovation will address the issue going forward.
We have adopted the smart specialisation methodology to develop Innovation Wales, which, like Science for Wales, will recognise our strengths and define our future research and innovation priorities.
