The University of Leeds has been selected by the Department for Business, Energy and Industry Strategy to lead a Science and Innovation Audit (SIA) into the Leeds City Region’s strengths in Medical Technologies.

Designed to map out local research, innovation and infrastructure strengths across the UK, the audits will help identify and build on the potential of every region across the country, making sure investment is properly targeted and uncovering opportunities for businesses to tap into.

The outcomes of the SIA will feed into the Autumn Statement, shape the Industry Strategy Challenge Fund, and underpin our response to the Building Our Industrial Strategy Green Paper.

Your views count. We want to hear from you no matter where you’re based.

  • What works in medical technologies innovation?
  • Where are the challenges and opportunities?
  • And what more can be done to support UK businesses to thrive and grow?

The survey will take approximately five minutes to complete. There is one page of questions - below.  Responses will remain anonymous but we have asked for your name and email to keep you informed of developments after the audit.
