Input into technology centres

25 Jan 2011

The Technology Strategy Board (TSB) is establishing a UK-wide network of technology and innovation centres. Over £200m over the next four years will be invested in these centres. You are invited to help shape this initiative by responding to the TSB prospectus.

Technology and innovation centres will be drivers of economic growth. They will attract substantial investment to establish world-leading capability and global impact, in precommercial development. They will provide access for business to the technical expertise, infrastructure, skills and equipment.

The TSB will establish six to eight centres. In the first phase (for centres to come into existence in 2011-12) the TSB will select three or four centres from the following list of areas. 

  • High value manufacturing
  • Energy and resource efficiency
  • Transport systems
  • Healthcare
  • ICT
  • Electronics, photonics and electrical systems

The TSB is seeking input on this list, including suggestions to provide a more specific technical focus within or across these broad areas.
