Micro Business Innovation Survey

Date published: 01 December 2014

The Micro Business Innovation Survey (MBIS) is a survey of 1,000 businesses with between one and nine employees.



The DETI Research Agenda 2012 – 2015 noted there was no information on innovation levels in micro businesses and committed to replicate the UK Innovation Survey (UKIS) for local micro businesses to develop data in this area.

Additionally, the recently published Innovation Strategy for Northern Ireland 2014 – 2025 also noted the lack of information on innovation activity among micro businesses and committed to conduct a pilot Micro Business Innovation Survey (MBIS) in order to get a fuller understanding of the main issues.
