Research and innovation in Wales

http://senedd.assembly.wales/SiteSpecific/ArrowGraphics/Inquiry_Stage_02.jpg

The Economy, Infrastructure and Skills Committee has agreed to undertake a short inquiry into research and innovation in Wales

Summary

The Economy, Infrastructure and Skills Committee is undertaking an inquiry into research and innovation in Wales in advance of a proposed Post-Compulsory Education and Training (PCET) Bill. The Committee will conduct pre-legislative scrutiny of Welsh Government funded university research and innovation activity and how it links with businesses.

Terms of reference

To do this the Committee will look at the following:

  • Funding for research and innovation activity, with an interest in:
    • The balance between funding for basic research (which will have no immediate commercial value) and funding for applied research that has more immediate innovation potential
    • The differences between research and innovation funding for universities and funding for businesses.
  • How to prevent the research and innovation interests of universities and colleges over-shadowing the research and innovation interests of industry.
  • Student and graduate entrepreneurs and the support available to them.
  • How universities and business (particularly SMEs) interact with each other, with a particular interest in:
    • How they transfer or absorb the knowledge gained from research.
    • The incentives and rewards for interacting.
    • How interaction can be improved.
