The first Matrix report was published in February 2007, when Matrix was asked to offer focused advice on the future policies necessary for Northern Ireland to ensure economic growth and wealth creation through greater commercial exploitation of its science and technology capabilities.
With DETI support, the panel embarked on an ambitious programme – working with Northern Ireland’s leading high tech businesses and senior academics as well as consulting with the wider stakeholder community.
An eight volume report was produced with a suite of recommendations which had the scope to break new ground in enhancing science and technology exploitation policy for Northern Ireland.
The panel concluded that the overarching challenge for Northern Ireland was to effect permanent cultural change so that the responsibility for leading the innovation agenda lies not with government or academia but with business.
They found that in order for Northern Ireland to compete effectively, market-led, cross-sectoral and multidisciplinary innovation must be the main focus.
