Globalisation is a critical challenge, and a key opportunity for UK research and development. With companies now operating on a global scale, they can choose to locate their R&D functions anywhere in the world. Countries are competing to attract these high-value, high-skill jobs. The UK has a strong tradition of corporate R&D from British and foreign-owned companies and a world-renowned science base. But is that enough for the future?
What attracts large R&D-intensive organisations to locate R&D in the UK? What influences companies to choose the UK as a R&D base? What could be improved to encourage more companies to choose the UK as a R&D base?
Join a panel discussion of major global R&D investors in pharmaceuticals, aerospace and defence and technology, to discuss the answers to these questions and more.
