The aim of this project was to explore the skills strategies (along with other, broader, strategic issues and policy initiatives) that would enable the UK to become a leading global player in the area of medical technologies, biotechnology and life sciences. While most of the existing work is regional in nature, there is also a strong international aspect. The present project will further extend and enhance the research from a national, UK perspective, although there will also be sectoral, regional and international dimensions to the study. The strategic view of future skill needs and other policy initiatives will be built up against a background of information and statistics about emerging technologies.
