January Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund Workshops

In November 2016 the Prime Minister Theresa May announced the creation of the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund (ISCF). Further detail of this new cross-disciplinary fund was also included in the Chancellor’s Autumn Statement as part of the National Productivity Investment Fund. Innovate UK and the UK Research Councils are defining 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.

As part of this process the Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN) is organising a series of short workshops in January for researchers and innovators to engage in this process. Events will be held across the UK and are not specific to any technology or industry sector. Please be advised that the London workshop is being held on the 18th January.

Members interested in being involved in these workshops should click here to register their interest in securing a place to attend the workshop with the KTN directly.
