7 September 2017, Central London, United Kingdom
It is timed to follow the Building our Industrial Strategy Green Paper, which highlighted investment in science, research and innovation as one of ten pillars for driving growth and productivity across the UK economy, and following the announcement of an Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund - seeking to drive progress in technologies where the UK can build on existing areas of industrial and research strength.
The conference is further timed to consider implications for the funding of research and development in light of the review of the Small Business Research Initiative, as well as proposals for a review of opportunities for robotics and artificial intelligence.
In the context of the recent announcement of £229 million of industrial strategy investment for UK R&D, delegates will discuss how new funding can be allocated in the interests of maximising growth and UK competitiveness internationally - looking in particular at opportunities for improving rates of commercialisation, developing research infrastructure, and improving skills and research talent.
Sessions will also bring out latest thinking on the areas in which the UK can build on existing strengths in industrial technologies - such as robotics and artificial intelligence, space technologies, healthcare, manufacturing processes and materials.
Speakers and delegates at this conference are expected to be a senior and informed group of around 120 including Members of both Houses of Parliament and government officials from BEIS, HMT, Innovate UK and other relevant departments and agencies, as well as industry representatives from sectors including automotive, defence, aviation, life sciences, maritime, energy, construction, infrastructure - and technologies such as AI, robotics, satellites, industry 4.0, additive manufacturing, biotechnology and other key areas - together with investors, suppliers, advisors, banks, academics and universities, lawyers, consultants and reporters from the national and trade press.
