This tender is for a research company to undertake a business survey to understand the scale and nature of impact for those who benefit from Innovate UK support. We are seeking proposals which suggest ways to demonstrate to what extent there is additionality through our programmes, compared with other companies that we do not engage with. Finally, we are looking for the successful provider to design a methodology that can be replicated to assess the impact of similar types of Innovate UK programmes.
This business survey will focus on two Innovate UK programmes that encourage greater diversity and inclusion of particular groups of Innovators that have, traditionally, been underserved - women and young people. In total, these programmes have provided funding and other support for approximately 250 projects and companies.
