Scotland CAN DO Innovation Forum

Scotland CAN DO IF

  • we connect

  • we have ambition

  • we have the right culture

The creation of the Scotland CAN DO Innovation Forum was announced in the Programme For Government and Scotland’s Economic Strategy.

Improving Scotland’s innovation performance is a top priority; it will mean seeking to shift business perceptions of, and ambitions for, innovation, making best use of public sector levers and funding to drive change and developing a truly collaborative approach to tackling these issues.

Led by the Cabinet Secretary for Economy, Jobs & Fair Work, the Forum will set challenging objectives for innovation in Scotland, develop a set of shared outcomes and scrutinise progress towards delivery.
