Description


Annual Conference 2017 - The Labour Party


Will Britain be part of shaping Artificial Intelligence, robotics and advanced technological disruption or will it be outpaced and left behind in the wake of the Fourth Industrial Revolution? Commerce and the world of work are changing, but in order for the UK to prosper it must aspire to transforming regions and supply chains to become innovation hubs like Silicon Valley, Shenzen or Bangalore. This approach has the capacity to breathe life into the Northern Powerhouse and Midlands Engine, boosting regional and economic development by building a sound innovation ecosystem and delivering world-class infrastructure in key areas.


Join Andy Burnham, Angela Eagle MP, Will Hutton and Professor Birgitte Anderson of the Big Innovation Centre to ask how government, academia and the private sector can work in partnership to facilitate a new era of technological and industrial innovation that promotes growth where it is most needed.

Ms Angela Eagle MP - Former Shadow Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills

Andy Burnham - Mayor of Greater Manchester
