Eight Great Technologies (PDF Document)
David Willetts , Minister for Universities & Science, The Policy Exchange

Politicians of all parties have talked about the importance of rebalancing the economy. This means two things – first, ensuring that
the economy does not become over-dependent on one sector and, secondly, that the economic divide between North and South
should be narrowed.

Science policy has a crucial role to play in both elements of rebalancing and in ensuring that the UK is able to compete in the
future in a highly competitive global marketplace. In this paper, David Willetts sets out eight great technologies in which Britain is
or can be global leaders. Advanced Materials is identified as one of the "Eight Great Technologies.
