MidsChem – The Future of Innovation and Regulation in the UK
December 6, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
MidsChem invites LATi life sciences community to attend a free event on the future of innovation and regulation in the UK, to be held to MediCity Nottingham on Wednesday, 6th December from 10am to 1pm.
Innovation is always risky. New technologies may not perform, or may take longer to develop than first anticipated. Does the uncertainty linked with the Brexit negotiations have any effect on the appetite of a business for innovation? Could companies be more likely to innovate when there is uncertainty? How will the translation of EU Regulations to UK Law affect the industries we are involved in?
The UK has a proud history of leading and supporting cutting-edge research and innovation within the EU. On the 27th November the government set out proposals to capitalise on the UK’s strategic strengths through its White Paper, “Industrial Strategy: Building a Britain fit for the Future”. This event aims to provide an open forum for discussion around the Strategy, what is being provided on a local level and how this could affect Innovation in businesses across the UK.
Come along to this free event to learn how the new Industrial Strategy may affect your innovation plans and network with other chemistry using businesses in the Midlands.
A light lunch and refreshments will be provided
Previously known as EMChem, MidsChem started in 2013 with the support of the Chemistry Innovation Laboratory (CIL) at the University of Nottingham, a project part funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
