The Welsh Government is fully committed to supporting development of knowledge economy and encouraging academic institutions to play a greater role in economic and social development of Wales by aggregating resources, reducing duplication of initiatives and encouraging creative expansion of innovation in Welsh businesses and academia.

Development and creation of the knowledge transfer continuum is a long term task that requires not only dedication and passion of all involved but also necessary funding to start the process going.

This paper highlights commitment and support the Welsh Government is giving to this highly desirable course of action.
