AIVC Event – New Scientist : Debate on Unleashing Innovation

Free Debate from the New Scientist on “Unleashing Innovation: how will the government’s boost to science spending pay off for Britain?”

Earlier this year, the UK government announced a dramatic increase in research and development spending. By 2027, R&D spending will rise to £65 billion or 2.4 per cent of GDP compared with just 1.7 per cent in 2017. The goal is to turn the UK into an innovation superpower-but how?

Join our distinguished panel to discuss:

How Britain can attract and retain world class expertise
“Moonshot” projects
The proposed Advanced Research Projects Agency
The role of the private sector in boosting commercial R&D spending
Achieving net zero carbon by 2050
