Investing in technology and innovation centres was one of the key recommendations in the Hermann Hauser review commissioned by Business Secretary Lord Mandelson.
The Hauser review concluded that Britain was missing out by failing to capitalise fully on its science and technology skills base.
The recommendations supported by Mandelson, involve developing a network of elite technology and innovation centres to turn ideas into products.
Lord Mandelson said:
“Too often in this country we have been brilliant at research and let others walk away with the commercial benefits of development. If we are to develop new industrial capabilities in Britain, we have to get more D out of our R&D”.
We are delighted to announce that Hermann Hauser is confirmed to speak at Science & Innovation 2010, where he will discuss his review along with other crucial topics including:
