The Chemical Sciences Scotland Industry Leadership Group has today released a new strategic plan resetting their goals for the next eight years. Scotland’s Minister for Business, Innovation and Energy, Paul Wheelhouse, approved the strategy review in November 2017 and has now backed the resulting plan.
There are currently four key priorities within this plan. These include: the transformation of Grangemouth’s chemical science cluster into a key European hub, realising Scotland’s potential in the Industrial Biotechnology (IB) sector, establishing Scotland as a world class centre of high value manufacturing and finally, the delivery of a Skills Investment Plan which will provide easy-to-access training and education at all levels in order to support the growth of the chemical sciences sector.
Tom Shields, acting chair of the Chemical Sciences Scotland Industry Leadership Group said:
“At Chemical Sciences Scotland our aim is to sustain a vibrant and competitive Scottish chemicals industry driving growth in the Scottish economy. Our ambitious strategy will look attract new investment through innovative new models and inspire more businesses to develop innovative new products, processes and services.
In support of this we are also aiming to provide the infrastructure for a leadership and skills pipeline across all disciplines and roles as well as making communication and connection simple between businesses.
The improvement of an entire economic sector requires a collaborative effort and the building of a community of businesses, academics and stakeholders will be necessary to meet our objectives.”
