Why we care about innovation
Major breakthroughs often come from unexpected places
We are now prepared to support more ambitious ideas in the hope of bigger breakthroughs, accepting that may mean more failures along the way.
Fostering innovation and high-risk, high-reward research is possibly our greatest challenge in an established sector which can be risk-averse. We will commit to continually assessing our grant calls to ensure they are compatible with high-risk, high-reward proposals.
