HM Treasury launched a consultation in August, “Financing-growth-in-innovative-firms”, which ran until 22 September 2017. The IP Federation responded to the consultation before the due date.
In summary, the IP Federation is in favour of positive action in this area. The contribution of innovation and IP to economic wellbeing, jobs and growth should be recognised, celebrated and encouraged. The UK Government should represent and support the interests of UK business stakeholders both on the domestic and international stage.
Two previous policy papers were attached to our response:
- PP 6/16 BIS open consultation – National Innovation Plan – call for ideas
- PP 9/12 Consultation on the role of government in protecting and promoting intellectual property
