The Industrial Strategy is the UK government’s long-term plan to raise productivity and earning power in the UK by investing in world-leading research and highly innovative businesses. The purpose of the Industrial Strategy is to address the biggest industrial and societal challenges today.

Each of these challenges will focus on a specific problem, bringing government, businesses and academics together across the country.

There is a natural collaboration between strong academic research science and the key translational capabilities that are largely found in industry. Across many industrial sectors, including Life Sciences, successful collaboration between academics and industry provides both the ideas and the energy for transformative change.
