About the dialogue

The UK's modern Industrial Strategy is a partnership with businesses, local government and educational institutions in the UK and overseas to ensure the UK remains one of the best places in the world to innovate, do business, to invest and create jobs.

The strategy invests in the skills, industries and infrastructure of the future and supports our citizens and businesses to embrace and benefit from the opportunities of technological change.

The Industrial Strategy sets out Grand Challenges to put the UK at the forefront of the industries of the future, ensuring that the UK takes advantage of major global changes, improving people’s lives and the country’s productivity.

The first 4 Grand Challenges are:

  • ​growing the Artificial Intelligence and data driven economy
  • clean growth
  • future of mobility
  • ageing society

This online dialogue enables us to hear a range of views on these global trends which will transform our future.

This platform is hosted by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). The platform is moderated by BEIS, as well as the Department for Transport, the Department for Health and Social Care, and the Department for Culture, Media and Sport.
