Research and innovation are at the heart of government strategy for promoting prosperity and growth. The UK’s research base is second in the world to the US for scientific excellence. Driving knowledge and development and exploitation of new technologies is central to the government’s Industrial Strategy.
Universities are a key component in positioning the UK as a key knowledge economy at the forefront of 21st century innovation. As centres of research excellence, they are key drivers of economic growth. They lay the foundation for further knowledge and wealth, and are a vital element in the development of economic growth, as outlined in the Witty Review.
The National Research and Innovation Conference will offer delegates with the opportunity to discuss and examine the future of the UK’s research and innovation system.
