UK launches new international technology partnerships

The UK Government has announced the launch of 28 new international innovative technology partnerships as part of the modern Industrial Strategy.

The projects cover a wide range of technology areas, surrounding major global issues. From the medical sciences, this includes a joint UK-India programme to develop solutions to anti-microbial resistance (AMR), and a UK-Korea programme to apply artificial intelligence and machine learning to the diagnosis of dementia.

Of these projects, 16 will share £79 million from the Fund for International Cooperation, which will be matched by the partner nations. The other 12 projects will share £200m in funding from the Global Challenges Research Fund.

“The projects being announced today reinforce our commitment to enhance the UK’s excellence in innovation at home and around the world, driving high-skilled jobs, economic growth and productivity as part of the modern Industrial Strategy.”
– Chris Skidmore, Minister of State for Universities and Science
