ISCF Next Generation Services Challenge: CR&D Competition Briefing

Description

This competition briefing event is organised by Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN) on behalf of UK Research and Innovation (UKRI)

As part of the Industrial Strategy, the Government will invest up to £20M in the Next Generation Services industrial strategy challenge fund (ISCF). The objective of the Challenge is to maintain the leadership position of the UK in global high-value services by developing a targeted approach to support the sector’s engagement in R&D in the emerging new technologies based on Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the data economy, one of four ‘Grand Challenge’ areas identified in the government’s Industrial Strategy White Paper.

The scope of this challenge is limited to legal services, accountancy and insurance which are high-value data-driven services under the broader category of Professional Business Services and Financial Services.

The briefing event will include:

  • an opportunity to hear about the objectives and scope of the CR&D programme
  • an opportunity to learn how to get involved in the CR&D programme
  • opportunities to network and develop ideas and partnerships for the competitions
  • an opportunity to meet with UKRI, KTN and wider stakeholders.

These events are free to attend with online registration on a first-come-first -served basis. We are looking to have representatives from as wide a number of organisations as possible.

As we are limited on numbers at all locations we would ask that organisations (including universities) only send 2 representatives maximum.

The Cardiff events will be held on 19 June at Sofia Gardens, you can register for free here.
