Online webinar 'Creating a “UK ARPA” – and making it a success'
The Government has proposed the creation of a new funding agency, to be “broadly modelled” on the US Advanced Research Projects Agency, which would “provide long term funding to support visionary high-risk, high-pay off scientific, engineering and technology ideas”.
This webinar will examine how such an agency could work, and how it might sit alongside funding structures in the UK, and what it would need to be successful.
