The Babbage Symposium offers a unique forum within which to develop new thinking at the interface of economics, engineering and management – to generate new insights with the potential to underpin industrial policies for economic competitiveness and growth.
Earlier Symposia have highlighted the need for better integrated disciplinary foundations for the development of policy in the areas of technology, innovation and manufacturing. They have paid particular attention to the role of manufacturing and its accelerating evolution in response to changing technologies and global structures. Issues of productivity, competitiveness and leadership have also been addressed.
