December 2011 – Members Survey
One of the areas of concern amongst IRDG members is that of R&D grant schemes and tax credits. We are a partner of choice with Government Agencies on these topics, and once equipped with the up to date data from you, are in a strong position to influence this evolving area for your benefit.
Anecdotal evidence suggests that member experiences of these areas are mixed, so we are completing a short survey which aims to:
• Understand the level of take-up of R&D grant schemes and factors influencing companies participating in them
• Understand the percentage of members availing of Tax Credits and the reason(s) for participating or not
• Gather up to date member profile data including organisation size, R&D spend, industry sector and turnover.
We received an excellent response rate with 53% of member companies taking the time to submit their data. A copy of the report is available on this link for your information.
A follow up conference call was arranged to allow members to discuss the findings and agree key points to take away from it for further action.
