NWBLT Chairman Juergen Maier on the Need To Embrace Innovation

Innovation is crucial for the North West economy to achieve its grand ambitions and play a fundamental role in the national economic rebalancing. Innovation is a key determinant of productivity, this is something that as a country, and even more acutely, as a region we are not performing well on.

As a way of tackling these challenges, last month at “Innovation 2018” – a joint conference hosted between the NWBLT, Innovate UK and Sci-Tech Facilities Council, NWBLT Chairman and CEO of Siemens UK, Juergen Maier provided a fantastic keynote speech on the need for all businesses in our region to embrace digitalisation and innovation across all aspects of business.
