UKRI seeks to create the best possible environment for research and innovation to flourish.

Alongside this, there will be sessions and a technology showcase around the four Grand Challenges identified by the UK Industrial Strategy; Artificial Intelligence & Data, Ageing Society, Clean Growth and Future of Mobility. 

There will of course, also be the usual high quality exhibition, innovation showcase and Pitching for Success competition.

The exhibition is an excellent opportunity to increase your exposure to a diverse audience that includes directors of large blue-chip companies, business managers who run innovative businesses, SME owners, researchers, industry specialists, innovators and enterprising young people. We are confident that you will gain business leads as a result of exhibiting at the event.
