The UK’s leading advanced manufacturers and Government will meet tomorrow at the Advanced Manufacturing Growth Summit to discuss how to work together to promote manufacturing excellence.
In November 2010, the Government launched the BIS and HMT Growth Paper which set out a programme of actions to enable sustainable, balanced growth in the UK economy. As part of this, the Government is assessing the potential for Government action in six sectors, including Advanced Manufacturing.
In December 2010, the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills published the ‘Growth Review Framework for Advanced Manufacturing’, developed with industry, which set out the barriers to growth. Also announced was the continuation of the Manufacturing Advisory Service (MAS), new robotics funding and increased engagement with industry.
The fourth of BIS’s exhibitions showcasing low carbon manufacturing will be unveiled at 1 Victoria Street to launch the Summit.
