The UK innovation landscape has undergone significant changes over the past year, with the removal of the regional development agencies and the introduction of the Local Enterprise Partnerships and Enterprise Zones.
This event will discuss the recent developments, what they mean for the growth and survival of physics-based business in the north west, and what more can be done by policymakers, advocacy groups, universities and businesses themselves to ensure that the region remains at the forefront of physics-based innovation.
