Engineering profession invites views on industrial strategy
Published: 22 March, 2017
The UK engineering profession has commissioned a survey to gather opinion and ideas from engineers about what a successful Industrial Strategy should look like, following the publication last month of the government’s green paper Building our Industrial Strategy.
The 38 national engineering institutions representing the engineering profession have joined forces, under the leadership of the Royal Academy of Engineering, to respond collectively to the consultation.
In the green paper, government set out its vision for a modern industrial strategy and identified 10 pillars that it believes are key to enabling stronger productivity and driving growth: science, research and innovation; skills; infrastructure; business growth and investment; procurement; trade and investment; affordable energy; sectoral policies; driving growth across the whole country; and creating the right institutions to bring together sectors and places.
