Entrepreneurship and Innovation Framework for Scotland. The document highlights the importance the Scottish Government attaches to entrepreneurship and innovation, the values that will inform our work and our future priorities for action.

Executive Summary

Our ambition is to achieve:

• an increase in entrepreneurship and innovation activity from individuals and businesses in Scotland resulting in more businesses being formed and new products and services from existing businesses;

• more people from all walks of life with the ambition and skills to create, lead and grow successful businesses;

• an education system with entrepreneurship and innovation at its core, seizing the opportunities presented by Curriculum for Excellence, college reform and the world-leading strength of our universities;

• more of our knowledge and intellectual capital being commercialised and greatly increased collaboration between business and the academic sector; and

• a greater focus on, and share of, global markets as our business leaders grow in confidence and expand their horizons internationally.
