Principal Partner Exchange Forum:
Skills and Innovation
- Professor Ewart Keep, School of Social Sciences,Cardiff University and deputy director of SKOPE
The Knowledge Economy programme at The Work Foundation will release a working paper on skills and innovation in August this year. Broadly speaking, this paper will argue that our economy requires a long term strategy for growth driven by creativity, innovation and enterprise. The success of this strategy will be dependent on a highly-skilled workforce with significant enterprise in STEM skills.
However, disciplinary enterprise alone will not be enough to drive a competitive knowledge economy to 2020 and beyond. Indeed, the idea that a highly-skilled workforce is synonymous with high-levels of graduate education is an increasing blunt measure of our intellectual and innovative capacity and new ways of thinking about the future requirements of a highly-skilled workforce are required.
We plan to engage with our principal partners via our public policy exchange forum to discuss whether and what public policy is needed to support the development of innovative and creative capacity in the current climate.
This exchange forum is exclusively for principal partners with The Work Foundation and there is no fee to attend
