  1. Mark Fisher • I’m afraid to say that this supports my ongoing debate with the TSB and that is that a the large proportion of this public money is not directed at helping establish new technology businesses. Why are we directing large amounts of cash at large UK

  2. Ben Jensen • I agree with Mark’s comments. It would also be interesting to get a better understanding of the true commercial value generated by these investments from the TSB. Do large, well funded PLC’s need external government investment for true commercially valuable research that most would normally fund internally?

  3. Joe Henry • Incredible. I see that some Universities are using upwards of £70K to implement CRM systems and websites. Must be some incredible CRM systems and websites out there.

  4. Joe Henry • ‘The Technology Strategy Board is the UK’s national innovation agency. Our goal is to accelerate economic growth by stimulating and supporting business-led innovation.’

    Given the TSB’s stated purpose there really are some stretches of the imagination in here. The development of University internal systems appear very frequently in the list. Far from ‘business led innovation’ It appears that this is just another revenue stream for Universities. I wonder what applications were dropped in favour of a CRM system for a University.

  5. Nick White • Interesting reading.

    I agree with Mark. If you add it all up large % is going to significant Plc led projects. Look at Rolls Royce, Jaguar, Airbus, BAE BP, Caterpillar, Ford, GKN, HP, Johnson Matthey, Nissan, Ricardo, Smith & Nephew, Syngenta, TWI and Unilever!

    The remainder appears to be split Universities and SME’s. I have to say on title alone some look highly suspect in terms of value for money. A large number of small amount projects for Universities. Efficient use of money both in terms of grant and management of the grant process?

    But when many grants require matching funds or even a 40% contribution for POC you can see why the cash poor new technology start-ups don’t get onto the list. This is largely state aid to the University and Plc sector, but I think we always knew this.

    OK how much did it cost the TSB to give away £635 million? What do the management fees look like July 2007 to April 2011? That’s 4 years at roughly £30 million per annum. That’s £120 million.

    Giving Govt money away is an expensive business!

  6. Brian Milnes • You have to be a little circumspect with this information.

    So if there are collaborators (e.g. Microsoft) who are match funding a project’s costs, it might at first appear that they are the recipients, as they maybe “lead partner”.

    So the list, while a great start, is only part of the story.

    What we need here is full transparency of public spending, for public scrutiny and accountability.

    What did these investments produce? And do we get anything back?

    Or (as I horribly suspect) they’ll more often than not, sink without trace; having been given a cursory sign off by their TSB monitor.

    And this, run by £195,000 p.a. Chief Executive, Ian Gray. The man who couldn’t describe the TechCity LaunchPad scheme at its Launch (factual inaccuracies, general ignorance about scope and detail).

    This scheme though, despite its inadequate start, has been very well received – and is to be the pilot for a possible wider scheme.

    TSB have also taken up the RDA GRAD funding role. (Proof of Concept etc.), that would have been sorely missed.

    Their recent competition (again, administrative aberations aside) was something of a successful outing, for funding idea development that wouldn’t otherwise see the light of day. (And which may well mean “most of it is crap”.) But spotting a winner is notoriously difficult.

    So, well done Lyndsay, but be cautious in blanket style condemnation. Like the “curate’s egg”, I think that the TSB is also “good in parts”!!

  7. Nick White • Agreed Brian.

    Notoriously difficult to spot winners but it’s easy to spot turkeys.

    We should at least see the economic case for each one.

    Unfortunately, the RDA GRAD POC funding requiring 40% cash on the nose is not accessible to around 90% of the science and technology start-ups I advise. The ones that need it and can use it. The administrative costs on all parties in trying to secure say £35K (60%) is also just ludicrous.

    I would take all of the Uni money in this pot and give 100% POC grants to technology start-ups properly vetted.

    The thing that gets me is that this sort of information requires a freedom-of-information request. The TSB annual report should be 500 pages long with all the relevant data made available to the public.

    My favourite on the list has to be Little Riot Ltd receiving £25K under the 2010 Disruptive digital solutions to develop “PillowTalk” for long distance loved ones. http://www.littleriot.co.uk/?q=node/11

    Brilliant! I think I know an industry that can make use of this technology!

  8. Joe Henry • My fav is this one:

    To develop, implement and integrate a web-based Enterprise System with core modules (eg CRM) to enable its complex organisational information and improve business performance., £78,495, The University of Bolton

    That’s over 2000 seats of Salesforce.com (Pro) – or over 200 seats for 10 years.

    Somebody somewhere is having a real laugh.

  9. Brian Milnes • My own little bugbear is with OGS Ltd who (from memory) got £½m to

    “translate” a Bio-therapeutics analysis engine into a Google beating search

    engine.

    You ever heard of it? No neither have I. Malcolm Young seems to be still

    happy with the publicity generated about it.

    If you want to know more, you could always Google it! (I asked for more

    information but was blank-walled)

    Brian

  10. Joe Henry • The thing that really annoys me about the TSB awarding to Universities is that we appear to have people in Universities who are employed to apply for any form of funding for any reason – so that they can continue to be in Universities applying for funding for any reason. What form of industrial strategy is this?

    If you also take into consideration the funding of teaching in Universities – it appears to me that our fixation with encouraging every school leaver to go to University is doing nothing more than systematically bidding up qualification levels for each and every available job.

    The qualification level required to perform any job is far beyond the actual requirements of the job and the only way that candidates can differentiate themselves is to have higher qualifications. So everybody has to go to University again – Universities need more funding to deal with increased demand and thus the cycle continues.

    The logical conclusion is that we won’t be happy until everybody in the country is employed by or attending University – all of which is justified on the basis that we need to up skill to cope with a knowledge economy that never actually materialises. But we do generate mountains of state funded IP for forgiven multinationals to pick through – we are a kind of R&D ‘TK-Max’ to global industry. A supply side only econmy?

    Nicks observation about state aid for plc’s and Universities is spot on. If SME’s are the engine of growth that everybody agrees they are why is there so little fuel going into the tank?

  11. Marcus Gibson • Further to others’ comments – a significant number of recipients are ‘digital services’ companies – which is hardly hitech, or ‘hard technology’ in any meaningful sense. Key firms such as Marine Current Turbines didn’t receive any grant cash until very recently, in spite of our constant pleas. Very few of our top-rated SMEs (in our UK SME database – gibson index) have won any funding. Apparently, one of its staff gets around £250,000 on a consultancy fee basis – nice work, etc!

    The TSB should carry out a survey, sector by sector, select the SMEs that have ground-breaking, market-changing product ideas – and then fund them fast.. Older warriors among us will remember the EU Commission’s promises over FP5, 6 & 7 – that ‘15% would go to SMEs’ – and about 6% was the highest figure achieved..

  12. Mark Fisher • Thanks guys for all of these valuable observations. One does wonder who was actually consulted on the implementation of these various schemes. As for GR&D awards (always better branded as SMART in my opinion) these have been a valuable asset over the years but when they moved into the RDAs for administration the paperwork increased several fold. Now that it has been clawed into the TSB remit I suspect the box ticking exercise will increase yet again.

    Awarding funding on the ability to tick boxes in the most non-entrepreneurial method possible in assessing good technology. It simply assesses who is good at ticking boxes. We need much better informed thinking and experience of start-up business at the centre to bring some better connectivity between the numerous schemes that have been running or exist beyond the funding cuts to make our investment in these activities much more effective.

    I’m glad it’s not just me that thinks something is wrong here in the way we are trying to generate growth.

    Anybody got a few £’m to spare? I’ve got a fanastic new venture to get funded this year.
