BIS open consultation – National Innovation Plan: call for ideas

25 May 2016

The IP Federation has submitted a response to the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills open consultation ‘National Innovation Plan: call for ideas’. The consultation runs until 30 May 2016.

In summary, the IP Federation is in favour of positive action in the following key areas:

  • recognition of the real need for government, when formulating any new IP policy proposal, to consult with industry openly and meaning­fully at a very early stage;
  • better coordination of IP policy across government, and recognising the role of the UK IPO as the IP policy lead;
  • any dealings with IP in their own transactions by government depart­ments and agencies to strongly support the general government IP and innovation policy and the UK national prosperity agenda; and
  • making the UK IP and Innovation policy voice heard on the global stage.
