Abstract

This paper examines Scotland's innovation performance relative the UK, using the latest 2011 UK Innovation Survey. The analysis shows that Scotland has a smaller proportion of businesses that are 'innovation active' than the UK average and lies in the bottom quartile compared to other European countries. The data highlight some key differences between Scotland and UK innovation performance in areas such as markets, motivation for innovation and investment. The analysis helps identify some areas where further research should focus.
