Our industry and technology insights make us an ideal partner in the development and delivery of national or local policies. By convening industry voices, we help shape policies that secure strong buy-in and produce results.
Key delivery partner
With world-class regional clusters and the UK’s best manufacturing community, we are well-placed to help policymakers deliver their ambitions in industrial and regional development (e.g., levelling up). We have a proven track record of delivering good value for the UK taxpayer.
We have strong relationships with the UK manufacturing community and fellow research and technology organisations. This means we speak from a position of knowledge and understanding of advanced manufacturing in the UK. We can draw on our deep insights to help policymakers shape and deliver national, sectoral, and local policies or activities.
Policies for a successful economy
Working with thousands of industrial partners each year across a broad range of areas, we understand the key challenges and opportunities the manufacturing sector faces. We can bring unique insights to your industrial strategy and policy on areas as disparate as net zero manufacturing, healthcare, and regional development (e.g., levelling up).
Convening Key Voices
At the junction of business, government, and the research community, we convene broad coalitions to provide strategic leadership on local, national and global challenges. We can help you to make informed decisions on the effect of policy in manufacturing and engineering sectors.
