Industrial Strategy


The EPC submitted a response to the inquiry into the Government’s Industrial Strategy, last September, and is currently preparing a response to the consultation on the Green Paper. The consultation seeks responses to 38 questions, but the EPC response will focus on the questions addressed in the pillars which will have a higher impact on higher education and research:

  • Pillar 1: Investing in science, research and innovation
  • Pillar 2: Developing skills
  • Pillar 9: Driving growth across the whole country

We would like to know your thoughts and ideas, and have prepared a survey. Survey link here.
