TOPIC: BIS Industrial Strategy; 8 Great Technologies

BIS Industrial Strategy; 8 Great Technologies 2 weeks, 5 days ago #1

The Business Secretary Vince Cable set out the government’s approach to industrial strategy in September 2012.

The industrial strategy builds on the government’s Plan for growth and the Growth review which looked at how the government is addressing the barriers faced by industry.

Following a sector analysis on which sectors could make the greatest contribution to future economic growth and employment in the UK '8 Great Technologies'were defined.

That strategy is now being examined and implemented.

This intends to:

Develop strategic partnerships with industry
Support emerging technologies
Improve access to finance for businesses
Work with business to help develop skills that businesses will need
Publish government contracts to provide confidence to business investment

What has been achieved so far?
What progress yet remains to create a solid infrastructure for this programme?
Are there any exemplars or case studies to be highlighted?
