SCI's Honorary President Mr Paul Booth OBE delivered the SCI Annual Summer Lecture following the 132nd AGM on Wednesday 3 July.

Mr Booth talked about a Strategy for delivering chemistry-fuelled growth of the UK economy. He explained the strategic priorities which will enable the chemistry using industries to increase their gross value added contribution to the economy by 50% to £300bn by 2030:

  • Secure and competitive energy and feedstocks
  • Accelerated innovation
  • Reinforced and rebuilt chemistry supply chains.

He emphasised that SCI has an important role to play in implementing the strategy, drawing on our multi-disciplinary network and knowledge.
