The publication of the UK Government’s green paper on industrial strategy has reignited debates about the targeting of industrial policy for particular sectors, technologies and industries. Modern manufacturing encompasses the whole value chain from research & development through production to support services. As such, it cuts across multiple sectors, industries and technologies, and is critical to place-based industrial strategy.

As part of the Work Foundation's Autumn Event Series in partnership with Lancaster University Management School, Professor Suzanne de Treville and Professor Alan Hughes will examine policy approaches to manufacturing in high-cost economies such as the UK. This will provide insights into the important role of manufacturing in the UK industrial strategy, and how to think about manufacturing-related value capture in the context of global value chains.

Following initial presentations, we will open up the debate, providing an opportunity for you to interact with speakers and other delegates via a Q&A session.
