6 The MTC journey Nov 2011

7 Still one of the largest manufacturers in the world Approximately half of each Airbus is made in the UK Rejuvenated automotive industry Home to 70% of Formula One teams Preferred location for food manufacture & export World class research and academic institutes UK Manufacturing 2/10/2012© 20127

8 The UK has a world class academic base …..but UK plc. has failed to capitalise on the early stage research coming out of Universities The UK Value Proposition 2/10/2012© 20128
