What is the event focus?

The event has been themed around the four grand challenges of the UK’s Industrial Strategy which are:

  1. Artificial intelligence and data
  2. Ageing society
  3. Clean growth
  4. Future of mobility

Leading policymakers will give their predictions for each sector and the opportunities for businesses. In addition to this, there will be sessions for other key sectors such as Agriculture and Manufacturing.

The discussions will cover the four industrial strategy areas along with the following themes:

  • global collaboration: benefits, tools and networking – meet your future partners
  • scaling up: insight into investment and funding - hear from investors and successful entrepreneurs
  • learning: expert advice, skills acquisition & knowledge gathering - hear from big business and funders about where they see future trends
  • diversity and inclusion: learn how to harness diversity to strengthen your business

Previous EUREKA and Innovate UK events have proven to be an excellent way for me to meet with so many businesses, investors and innovation stakeholders.  This year’s event will feature even more opportunities to meet with policymakers and large businesses discussing their future priorities.

We look forward to seeing you at the EUREKA Global Innovation Summit 2019, alongside businesses and policymakers from more than 45 countries who have been invited to this event in addition to a significant UK audience.
