2012 Annual Lecture
will speak on
The UK economy is stagnant following the financial crisis of 2008, but in many ways we still lead the world. We are home to globally recognised universities, innovative businesses, and this summer’s Olympics showcased our engineering, design, and sporting talent to the world. Our research base remains world-class.
How can we make better use of the UK’s strengths, including in science and engineering, to build a sustainable and prosperous future? How should the Government strike a balance when it comes to market intervention? What can we learn from the experiences of other technologically advanced economies with successful industrial strategies?
Lord Heseltine has a unique perspective on these issues, having served as a member of the Cabinet from 1979 to 1986 and 1990 to 1997. Having delivered our Annual Lecture in 1989 (‘Paying for Science’), we are delighted to welcome Lord Heseltine back as our Distinguished Lecturer for 2012.
Kindly hosted by the Science Museum and sponsored by EADS/Airbus.
Registration from 7pm. The lecture begins at 7.30pm.
A reception event will be held afterwards.
