Technology Strategy Board TSB
Innovate UK stated, 'The nature and remit of the organisation will remain the same. It will continue to fund, support and connect innovative businesses through a unique mix of people and programmes to accelerate sustainable economic growth.'
The Technology Strategy Board was originally established in 2004 to advise the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry on business research, technology and innovation. On 1 July 2007 it took on a wider role and was re-structured as an arm's length, business-led, executive non-departmental public body (NDPB) sponsored and funded by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS).
In 2013/14 it had a budget of £440m. Project funding was usually matched by business, and as a result of this and other partner contributions, the Technology Strategy Board enabled around £2.5bn of investment in its first five years.
The Technology Strategy Board was required to act in accordance with a management statement and financial memorandum. It had a governing board, with representatives from business, research and innovation and was run by a chief executive, management team and around 200 staff.
