MidsChem – The future of Innovation and Regulation in the Chemical Industry
Thursday 26th April 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 6:30 pm
Innovation is always risky. New technologies may not perform, or may take longer to develop than first anticipated. Does the uncertainty linked with the Brexit negotiations have any effect on the appetite of a business for innovation? Could companies be more likely to innovate when there is uncertainty? How will the translation of EU Regulations to UK Law affect the industries we are involved in?
The UK has a proud history of leading and supporting cutting-edge research and innovation within the EU. The government has set out proposals to capitalise on the UK’s strategic strengths to make sure we do more to commercialise the world leading ideas and discoveries made in Britain through its Green Paper, “Building our Industrial Strategy”.
“The objective of our modern industrial strategy is to improve living standards and economic growth by increasing productivity and driving growth across the whole country.”
This event will include speakers from organizations such as Innovate UK Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN), D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership and others.
There will also be lots of opportunity to network with other chemical science businesses.
A tour of the GSK Carbon Neutral Laboratory will also be available.
