Industrial Strategy Event

Friday 9th March
9:00 am – 4 pm
Glasgow City Chambers, George Square, Glasgow

We know that collaboration is a pre-condition for increased productivity and economic growth, and that the most sustainable and inclusive economies have diversity and equality at the heart of policy formulation.

SCDI welcomes a UK Industrial Strategy (UKIS) which delivers against these key priorities. Both the Scottish and UK Government agree with SCDI that public and private sector collaboration will ensure the best UKIS deal for all of Scotland.

The day will kick off a series of work by SCDI and Strategic Partners – Jacobs, Scottish Funding Council, EDF Energy and SQA – to help to secure a good deal for Scotland from the UK Industrial Strategy by:

Developing a joint and shared vision across sectors and geographies of the Scottish economy;
bringing together sectors of the Scottish economy to collaborate on opportunities; and
taking forward discussions about how to maximise national and regional economic benefits.
As well as a networking lunch, the event will feature 5 sessions:

Session 1 – UK Industrial Strategy and Scotland Overview
Session 2 – Scotland’s Opportunities
Session 3 – Grand Challenges and Sector Deals
Session 4 – Regional Growth
Session 5 – Gearing up Businesses to Meet Productivity Challenges
