Read PUBLIC's new research report exploring the innovators powering the UK's climate ambition.
The UK government has made a clear and bold commitment to use technology to deliver on its NetZero promise. In March 2021, the UK Government announced the unveiling of the Net Zero Innovation Portfolio (NZIP) – a collection of ten areas where £1b of R&D investment has been pledged to develop green technologies, including growth funding for startups and scale-ups.
PUBLIC has authored this report highlighting the central role startups can play in making the NZIP funding envelopes most impactful, and developing the green technologies needed to tackle climate change. We also made key recommendations to help the Government realise this opportunity. These strategies were developed having hosted two roundtable discussions with energy leaders and decision-makers in early-2021. One hosted by Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy The Rt Hon Kwasi Kwarteng MP, and one by the UK’s NetZero Business Champion, Andrew Griffith.
In our report ‘Startup Zero’ we highlighted:
Simplifying Data Sharing for Short-Term Rental Platforms in the EU.
For the modern state, there are few policy priorities as important as how it buys technology and innovation. To keep up to date with the pace of change in the wider digital economy, it is absolutely crucial that Government modernises its procurement and commercial processes.
