What’s next for Bristol’s technology sector?
Robotics, big data, quantum computing. These are all exciting areas of work in which Bristol has a real opportunity to excel and lead the way on a national and international stage.
This will be the message from Bonnie Dean, chief executive at the Bristol & Bath Science Park, when she presents to a major conference today in Bristol.
Bristol’s Bright Future conference will review why Bristol is set to boom, the market sectors that will contribute to the region’s growth and the economic outlook for the future. It will also highlight key projects and initiatives that the city should be proud of.
Bonnie will be talking about the role science and technology plays in the region’s economy, some of the success stories coming out of Bristol and what opportunities lie ahead for the city.
“Our achievements in the aerospace, silicon and creative industries are well known but we must keep our eye firmly fixed on the future,” says Bonnie.
“Only by constantly innovating, adapting existing technologies and adopting new ones will we create prosperity for a new age.
“The Government has stated its commitment to eight great technologies and Bristol has great potential to exploit and succeed in many of these areas. We have a strong history of enterprise and engineering skill and we must continue to apply this to new sectors as they emerge so that the city is well positioned for the future.”
Bristol’s Bright Future conference takes place on Tuesday October 15 at Ashton gate Stadium at 3pm.
