The Enhancing Value Task Force

The Enhancing Value Task Force has been launched by the Council for Industry and Higher Education (CIHE) in conjunction with the UK-Innovation Research Centre (UK~IRC) to answer the question:

How do we make the most of the UK research base?

The CIHE and UK~IRC believe that by uniting leading figures in industry and academia they will deliver an answer. The Task Force’s ambition is to ensure that Government policies and business and university activities are aligned to achieve maximum economic impact for the UK globally and to keep the country at the forefront of research.

David Eyton, Group Head of Technology at BP and Professor Shirley Pearce, Vice Chancellor of Loughborough University the Task Force’s co-chairs, will lead discussions to deepen the understanding and enhance the value of the research base in the UK. This issue will be explored through workshops, research reviews, online collaboration channels, and interviews with many of the UK’s outstanding innovators.
