NEW MATERIALS INNOVATION LEADERSHIP GROUP SET TO DELIVER NATIONAL MATERIALS INNOVATION STRATEGY
A new Materials Innovation Leadership Group (MILG), Chaired by Allan Cook CBE, held its first meeting on 11 July. The MILG is being facilitated by the Henry Royce Institute for advanced materials, under the direction of its CEO Professor David Knowles. It has been established to oversee and champion the development of a new National Materials Innovation Strategy that will tackle the major challenges and opportunities that lie ahead for the UK.
The MILG is made up of senior representatives spanning a range of industry and key research organisations and will focus on requirements to expedite the translation of leading-edge UK materials science and research into the new products and services needed to address major policy challenges – such as net zero, health improvements and sustainable use of resources.
The new Leadership Group will champion the outputs and drive implementation plans, forming an alliance for materials that will provide opportunities to collaborate, to work with Government and above all, to grow the materials innovation pipeline. Read more
