Industrial Strategy: the Grand Challenges

Outline of government Grand Challenges for the Industrial Strategy.



The Industrial Strategy sets out Grand Challenges to put the UK at the forefront of the industries of the future.

As part of our approach we are developing ambitious missions to tackle these Grand Challenges. Each mission will focus on a specific problem, bringing government, businesses and organisations across the country together to make a real difference to people’s lives.
