£70 MILLION FOR SCOTS MANUFACTURING

New plans have been unveiled to support Scotland’s manufacturing sector with a joint centre of excellence and skills academy.

The new centre will aim to stimulate innovation, improve productivity and increase investment in the Scottish manufacturing sector.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon says it is part of a wider programme promoting science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) subjects in school.
Supported by £70 million of investment, a new strategy for manufacturing – A Manufacturing Future for Scotland – outlines how government will work with industry and with higher and further education institutions to stimulate innovation, improve productivity and increase investment in Scottish manufacturing in order that it can better compete globally.
