2024 UK Innovation Report launch

1 min read

Innovation is key to achieving a sustainable economy and supporting high-value jobs. Addressing pressing socio-economic challenges requires the development and large-scale deployment of new technologies across our industrial sectors.

The Innovation Report, from Cambridge Industrial Innovation Policy, part of the Institute for Manufacturing, University of Cambridge, is an essential resource for government and industry. It brings together, in a single place, innovation and value-added indicators in a concise and accessible format.

The latest version of the report includes updated indicators and datasets as well as new analysis on the Machinery Manufacturing sector. Insights gathered from consultations with major industry and government stakeholders provide a deeper understanding of the data’s real-world implications.

Join us as we launch the 2024 UK Innovation Report and explore the UK’s innovation activity and its industrial performance in a global context. We will present and discuss the report, joined by key figures from the UK innovation landscape.

  • Vanda Jones – Executive Director, British Compressed Air Society (BCAS)
  • Dr Carlos López-Gómez – Head of the Policy Links Unit, Institute for Manufacturing, University of Cambridge
