Working better across organisational boundaries remains a firm priority for government as a whole, nowhere is this more relevant than R&D. Whether it’s tackling solutions to climate change, developing military or robotics to anti-microbial resistance, it drives improved productivity and prosperity for the UK economy generating IPR and high quality jobs. This is why the government’s 2017 Industrial Strategy highlights the importance of R&D for UK economic growth, and why the government has committed to R&D to improve healthcare and medicines. It’s also why a number of different departments fund areas of R&D.
Collaborating securely and protecting valuable sovereign IPR has to be a fundamental bedrock to any cross government collaboration approach as security threats are evolving rapidly; but the capabilities needed to deal with them are often distributed across government and the private and third sectors — and may even be provided by international partners.
