NERC welcomes the government green paper Building our Industrial Strategy, which launches a consultation on how to address long-term challenges for the UK economy.

The government wants to hear about the skills, research, infrastructure, and the other things we need to get right to drive long-term growth in productivity.

Excellent, independent research is essential for the UK to maintain and strengthen its leading position as the best place in the world to innovate and grow business. NERC works with many partners in business and government, and across the UK research and innovation landscape, to ensure that our investment delivers huge benefits for society and for our economy.[1]

We encourage all our stakeholders to respond to the industrial strategy consultation - external link. In doing so, we ask you to consider how environmental science can help a modern industrial strategy to deliver productivity, jobs and growth across the UK.
