Science and Innovation Audit

The Midlands Engine Science and Innovation Audit

Announcement of the Science and Innovation Audit reports.

The Midlands Engine Science and Innovation Audit report was submitted to Government in September. Subsequently all five of the “Wave 1” audits have been reviewed by Government and certain Agencies. Following some feedback from Government, yesterday BEIS announced the outcome of the Wave 1 Audits, including the Midlands Engine audit.

You can access the Midlands SIA report in PDF form, via the following links
• The short Summary report is available here.
• The main SIA report comprises two documents: the main report and the data Annex.

There is now also a Government page dedicated to the report from ALL five of the Wave 1 SIAs. This is available here. These were announced in Greg Clark’s speech at Innovate 2016 yesterday.

For the Midlands, the next steps are being considered by the Midlands Engine Innovation Group – the Midlands SIA Delivery Group was a task and finish group set up to deliver the Midlands SIA work on behalf of the Midlands Engine Innovation Group.
