Boost to the technology sector with £600 million investment
February 14, 2013
I’ve just been reading about a boost to the technology sector that will benefit research and development projects in the UK. An investment that, I believe, will enable local technology businesses to compete in the global marketplace.
In a speech this week the Minister for Universities and Science, David Willetts announced:
“The ‘eight great technologies’ which will propel the UK to future growth and help it stay ahead in the global race have received a funding boost.”
He then set out details of how the £600million announced for science in the Autumn Statement will support big data, space, robotics and autonomous systems, synthetic biology, regenerative medicine, agri-science, advanced materials and energy.
