UK Manufacturing Forum

The UK Manufacturing Forum had a tangible influence on UK government policy in 2021-22, which led to changes in funding mechanisms

When thought leaders are brought together, incredible things can happen. This is why we partner with the University of Cambridge’s Institute for Manufacturing to convene some of the most influential researchers and industry representatives each year in the UK Manufacturing Forum. The Forum is a space for these leading lights to combine their strengths in service of the wider community.

In 2021/22, the Forum had a tangible influence on UK government policy through its Bridging the Academic-Industrial Gap report, which led to changes in funding mechanisms.

Now in its fourth year, we are developing an independent structure for the Forum to empower the research base to act on its own behalf, for the benefit of the country as a whole.
