UK Formulation position paper

“Formulation Technology – A strategic investment opportunity for the UK” was prepared in response to a growing concern from UK industry and academia, that the importance and value of formulation technology was not being adequately recognized and prioritised by UK government. The document gives an overview of the opportunity, relevant global drivers, a vision of the future and actions needed and forms the basis for on-going engagement with key organizations such as EPSRC, Technology Strategy Board and the European Commission via SusChem UK.

The paper was created with inputs and validation from Chemistry Innovation’s members, Intelligent Formulation Ltd, IChemE, RSC, North West Development Agency, Yorkshire Forward and Yorkshire Chemical Focus
