An increasingly critical challenge for the UK is to ensure that the substantial investments in science and technology, skills and education that the government has made, and continues to make, are more effectively translated into innovation and wealth creation by business in the UK. Therefore, having rigorously assessed over 100 technologies, The Council for Science and Technology has identified six key technologies where larger‐scale focus by the UK government now could accelerate the real commercial returns and social benefits to the UK over the next five years.
