The UK Government's Innovation Strategy is due to be released alongside the 2014 Autumn Statement. This timely conference will bring together key policymakers with stakeholders central to the strategy's implementation to discuss the likely impact of the proposals and the challenges for putting policy into practice.
At this early stage we expect topics for discussion to focus on priorities for public spending on science, efforts to boost private investment in R&D and further steps Government can take to support business and university collaboration to increase the commercialisation of UK research. Sessions will also include discussion on the the impact that Government's focus on 'eight great technologies' has had so far and the next steps for developing these technologies in the UK.
