    Since Britain voted to leave the EU, the government has highlighted the importance of an Industrial Strategy as a means of driving growth for the UK. SCI believes that the Industrial Strategy will need to be underpinned by science and innovation to be successful.

    On Tuesday 23 May 2017 at SCI's Public Evening Lecture Rt Hon. the Lord Willetts compared the different approaches, focusing on industrial sectors, clusters, regions, and technologies that will form the framework. He will also highlight new technologies where Britain has a comparative advantage and where there is a global business opportunity the Eight Great Technologies.
