OVERVIEW

TechWorks is the brand new UK Industry Association for ‘Deep Tech’; the underpinning technologies such as AI, robotics, 5G, machine vision, IoT, analytics and automation that drive the new economy.

The inaugural TechWorks Industry Summit will bring together over 100 leaders in our rich community to address the key challenges and opportunities that our industry faces as a result of Brexit.

SO WHAT WILL BREXIT REALLY MEAN FOR THE UK TECH INDUSTRY?

The technology sector was a vocal advocate for Britain staying in the European Union; much of UK tech investment is dollars and the industry relies on foreign talent from both the EU and the rest of the world.

Does Brexit really mean Techxit?

 

The UK Tech Industry is an essential, vibrant and growing part of the UK economy, and imminent Brexit will pose many challenges and opportunities including:

  • What will be our new position be in the world from a Tech perspective?
  • How can UK Deep Tech be used to help grow the UK economy in the new world?
  • What does UK need to invest in to secure our progress?
  • What threats do we need to guard against to make sure our industry still grows?
  • What do we need to do together or collaboratively to maximise future success?

“As we go forward with Brexit, it is vital that we avoid a ‘Techxit’ and take all steps to build on the UK’s position as a vital node in the global technology development eco-system.”
Sir Hossein Yassaie
