Machine gears grinding together

Find out about the UK’s Industrial Strategy Grand Challenges

University of Kent staff are invited to join Kent Innovation & Enterprise and local businesses for breakfast and an interactive session explaining the UK’s Industrial Strategy on the 12th July at 8am.

 This breakfast briefing will be a quick, informative and interactive way to learn about the Challenges and how to access opportunity funding. As part of the morning we will have a working session to illustrate how the Strategy highlights the strengths and weaknesses of the UK economy. 

The Industrial Challenges to be discussed are:

Artificial Intelligence and data – new industries in their own right, they are also transforming business models across many sectors as they deploy vast datasets to identify better ways of doing complex tasks.

Ageing society – ageing populations will create new demands for technologies, products and services. We have an obligation to help our older citizens lead independent, fulfilled lives, continuing to contribute to society.

Clean growth – whole new industries will be created and existing industries transformed as we move towards a low carbon, more resource-efficient economy.

Future of mobility – a profound change in how we move people, goods and services around our towns, cities and countryside. This is driven by extraordinary innovation in engineering, technology and business models.
