Section 5: Conclusion and Tracking Our Progress

The activities set out in the innovation action plan coupled with the additional recommendations in this paper aim to provide a framework for improvement in Scotland's innovation performance.

It is important that we track progress towards this improvement and we will work with the Strategic Board to establish appropriate stretching targets around, for example, the following potential indicators:

Key Indicator

Improvement in…

Innovation spend

  • GERD as a % of GDP

Business Innovation Spend

  • BERD as a % of GDP
  • BERD spend with < 400 employees

Business Innovation Activity

  • Share of innovation active businesses
  • Share of innovation active businesses deriving > 10% increase in turnover
  • Share of innovative businesses collaborating

Business Innovation Employment

  • BERD FTE jobs share of total employment

Business and HE/ FE collaboration

  • HERD as a % of GDP

We will also propose that we benchmark our progress against OECD quartiles or averages.
