Comparative Advantage

Can the UK stay scientifically competitive in a multipolar world?

As the Integrated Review and Innovation Strategy highlighted, the UK faces growing foreign challenges to a number of areas of comparative advantage and new technologies are emerging which hold clear strategic value for first movers. This is a challenge not only for the UK but the wider West. While the UK has taken some defensive steps to preserve key technologies and assets in the UK through the National Security and Investment Act, we do not yet have an offensive plan to develop, grow and scale our domestic expertise and industry in disciplines or technologies that are likely to underpin future scientific progress or economic value. 

In person events are a great way to engage with experts, industry professionals and parliamentarians on the subject. If you are interested in attending this event, please email james.bennett@ukonward.com
