Making the UK a leader in green innovation post-Brexit and Covid

This panel discussion will explore the key steps businesses are taking in environmental and social innovation to remain competitive and ‘build back better’; empowering a new, more agile post-Brexit economy.

Thursday 27th May – 4:00PM-5:00PM

Our Expert Panel will be discussing:

The innovation ecosystem in the UK post Covid and Brexit

The extent to which environmental & social innovation are increasingly important drivers for growth

The impact Brexit is likely to have on companies’ innovation strategies

Perceptions of existing UK government support for innovation and this year’s HMRC consultation on the R&D Tax Credit schemes

Key topics:

  •  The importance of environmental and social innovation to remain competitive as the UK looks to build back better from Covid-19
  • 44% of UK businesses expect to cooperate more with UK companies on innovation after Brexit, and 41% expect to increase international cooperation
  • As the pandemic ends, the government must streamline and simplify the R&D framework to support green innovation; it’s currently seen as complex and time-consuming
  • With 55% of businesses considering the UK not to be innovative, the Chancellor’s review of the R&D tax relief system offers a huge opportunity to boost R&D investment among businesses
  • 85%/89% of small/ large businesses say ESI is key to remaining competitive and accelerating sustainable goals, particularly decreasing energy consumption
