Overview

 Earlier this year, the UK government announced a dramatic increase in research and development spending. By 2027, R&D spending will rise to £65 billion or 2.4 per cent of GDP compared with just 1.7 per cent in 2017. The goal is to turn the UK into an innovation superpower-but how?

Join our distinguished panel to discuss:
  • How Britain can attract and retain world class expertise
  • "Moonshot" projects
  • The proposed Advanced Research Projects Agency
  • The role of the private sector in boosting commercial R&D spending
  • Achieving net zero carbon by 2050
