Now entering its third year Creating a Scientific Superpower continues to drive dynamic debate with a world-class speaker line-up and more than 500 key stakeholders in UK innovation.

This year’s conference will explore what’s needed in a new UK industrial strategy, how we create an environment that not only attracts global talent but also supports them from startup phases to IPO.

The audience will be engaged in discussions aimed at unlocking the UK’s potential as a scientific leader, fostering a competitive ecosystem, and enhancing national productivity.
