The future for UK science and innovation funding and policy - Brexit, the HE and Research Bill and supporting disruptive innovation
2 February 2017, London, United Kingdom
With a National Innovation Plan currently scheduled for release in late 2016 and with huge uncertainty over the long-term impact of the EU referendum result on UK science funding and collaborations this conference will be a timely opportunity to draw together key policymakers and affected stakeholders to discuss the future of science and innovation policy.
Topics for discussion will include those outlined in the consultation for the National Innovation Plan, such as the policy direction needed to maximise the opportunities presented by ‘big data’, potential further reform of IP laws, improving access to finance for disruptive start-ups and ‘challenger businesses’, as well as how the UK can retain and continue to attract R&D-intensive businesses to operate here.
