This report by Professor Stephen Roper and Ully-Yunita Nafizah explores collaboration for innovation.

This report draws on data from the Innovation State of the Nation Survey (ISNS) 2023 and explores three research questions:

  1. What differences exist in the profile of innovation collaboration between firm size bands across the UK?
  2. How do supply chain and non-supply chain collaboration benefit innovation in smaller and larger companies?
  3. How do the ‘missing links’ among smaller firms influence innovation outcomes?

You can access the findings via the download link on the right-hand side.
