Science underpins so much of what we do, how we do it, where we do it and why.  The conference will explore some of these areas with a combination of presentations, panel discussions, breakout andinteractive sessions. These will provide the opportunity to learn from others and connect with people and businesses of interest.


Great ideas come from many different backgrounds, theories and discussions.  What do they all have in common? It is the drive of the individual or group involved to make them successful for reasons of scientific breakthrough, a development of a previous innovation or something completely novel.  The commercial success of these innovations can either encourage or discourage the idea to be taken forward. The conference will explore how this can be supported with examples of where and how this has been achieved.


The drive to encourage the ongoing development of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) skills is never ending.  What is certain is that these subjects can lead to great work opportunities and are essential to underpin great science, great innovation and commercial success.  The conference will examine the various routes to gain and develop these skills through academic, technical andleadership development, enabling delegates to understand the various routes and how to become involved.
