New Department for Science, Innovation and Technology

Good news for new start-ups and inventors.


Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has recently announced the creation of a new Science, Innovation and Technology Department, which comes as a welcome move for UK innovation. With more focused political energy being put behind the UK’s innovation and start-up businesses, along with providing a more prominent and dedicated voice in Whitehall.


The move will bring quantum, AI, engineering biology, semiconductors, future telecoms – along with life sciences and green technologies, into a single department, under the newly appointed Science, Innovation and Technology Secretary Michelle Donelan.

With an increased level of investment we hope to see a jump in UK innovation, a move with coincides with the recent expansion of PatProtect and the services we provide.
