Building Partnerships to Deliver the High-Level R&D Programme for the Foundation Industries
Posted on 10/10/2019
The Welsh Government, alongside the Knowledge Transfer Network and Innovate UK/UK Research and Innovation, will be holding a workshop on Wednesday 23rd October at the Wales Principality Stadium in Cardiff. The workshop will focus on ‘Building Partnerships to Deliver the High-Level R&D Programme for the Foundation Industries.’
The UK Foundation Industries (covering metals, ceramics, paper, glass, chemicals and cement), with a combined turnover estimated at £45bn, face many common challenges and the opportunity to address these challenges through cross-sector collaboration is compelling. This allows for a convincing case to be made for government support. Funding and strategic support are necessary to address industry productivity and global competitiveness, and to meet sustainability goals.
The Welsh Government, KTN and Innovate UK/UK Research and Innovation are holding this workshop to prepare the Foundation Industries for future growth. The workshop will progress priorities identified from a number of engagements with industry and other stakeholders aimed at informing Innovate UK’s work plan to support cross-sector collaboration across the six industry sectors.
- Build on the cross-sector innovation priority areas already identified
- Comment on key priority areas for R&D support
- Learn about current available industrial R&D funding
- Network across the Foundation Industry sectors for potential collaboration and future partnerships
