star this property answer text <p>The functions of the Government Innovation Group were transferred to the Office for Civil Society and Innovation (OCSI) and Government Digital Service in 2015. On 21st July 2016 the functions of OCSI transferred from the Cabinet Office to the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS). Policy Lab and Business Partnerships remain part of the Cabinet Office resulting in a name change for OCSI, which is now called the Office for Civil Society (OCS). Since 1st January 2016 to date OCS has worked to deliver the Government’s vision of having a more engaged nation, one in which we take greater responsibility for ourselves and for our neighbours.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p><strong> </strong></p><p>The Research Councils’ collective ambition is to ensure the UK remains the best place in the world to do research, innovate and grow businesses for the benefit of society and the economy. Each Research Council publishes an annual impact report. The Research Excellence Framework is a periodic, selective assessment of the quality and impact of research produced by UK universities derived from a range of funding sources including Research Councils, Government bodies, industry and charities. It assesses both the excellence of the research and of the impact that excellent research has had on the economy and society. In 2014, 44% of submitted impacts were judged outstanding (4*) and a further 40% judged very considerable (3*).</p><p> </p><p>Innovate UK has evaluated the impact of its interventions showing that on average, for every £1 it has invested, there is a return of between £6.40 and £7.30 in GVA to the economy. It has supported innovation in 7,600 organisations, creating around 55,000 new jobs. Innovate UK grant support is shown to substantially increase UK firms’ innovation performance, with significant impacts noted for SMEs (with 10 to 250 employees) and large firms (with more than 250 employees).</p><p> </p><p>As many Catapults are still in the earlier stages of implementation, it is too early to fully assess the performance of the Catapult network. Key performance indicators are in place to help assess Catapult performance. Innovate UK will publish evaluation frameworks for Catapult centres this financial year.</p><p><strong> </strong></p>
