SIN helps Indian High Value Manufacturing investment to UK
A key objective for India is to ‘make in India’ and the UK is well placed to support these ambitions for mutual benefit
Science and Innovation Network (SIN) India and the Department for International Trade (formally UK Trade and Investment) worked together to secure investment wins from major Indian companies into a key manufacturing research centre of a UK university.
In October 2015 the SIN and UKTI India teams put together an ambitious plan to take a dozen key manufacturing companies and academic experts to the UK. Our aim was to demonstrate the partnership potential of the UK’s research and innovation centres – namely the High Value Manufacturing catapults and universities.
SIN and UKTI built a programme that focussed on the strengths of the North / Midlands (Warwick Manufacturing Group; Sheffield’s Advanced Manufacturing Centre (AMRC) and Leeds University) and with Cambridge’s Institute for Manufacturing and the Manufacturing Informatics Centre Cranfield University. This was not a one-way flow of visitors. We also brought key UK manufacturing experts to sample India’s manufacturing and research bases in two key locations – Pune and Bengaluru.
