The Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund (ISCF) was announced by the Prime Minister at the 2016 CBI Annual Conference, and further detail of this new cross-disciplinary fund was included in the Chancellor’s Autumn Statement as part of the National Productivity Investment Fund. Innovate UK and the Research Councils are beginning to define a first round of challenges to be addressed by the ISCF, and will soon be in a position to seek input from industry and the research base into their development.
KTN is organising a series of short workshops across the UK in the second half of January for researchers and innovators to engage with Innovate UK and the Research Councils in this process. Events will be held across the UK and are not specific to any technology or industry sector. The Glasgow workshop will be held on 19 January 2017 and SoXSA will be present at this event.
Date: 17 January 2017
Time: 9am – 2pm
Venue: Glasgow Royal Concert Hall
