2023 UK Innovation Report launch
Thursday 23 March
Time: 16:00 to 17:30
Venue: Live stream (and limited in-person availability - Institute for Government, London)
Innovation is key to achieving a sustainable economy and supporting high-value jobs. Addressing pressing socio-economic challenges requires the development and large-scale deployment of new technologies across our industrial sectors. The UK government restructure signals the intention to turn scientific and technical innovations into practical, applicable solutions to help make sure the UK is the most innovative economy in the world.
The report, from Cambridge Industrial Innovation Policy, University of Cambridge, is an essential resource for government and industry. It combines innovation and value-added indicators with sectoral analyses of the food and drink and aerospace sectors and the performance of innovation in net-zero-related technologies.
Expect to hear from expert keynote speakers who will share the latest UK government commitments on R&D expenditure, the latest data on UK productivity performance by sector and how net-zero innovation translates into economic growth in the UK.
