In 2017, the sector invested £28 billion overall – a 46% increase against the level in 2010.</p><p> </p><p>It is important that UK manufacturing continues to pioneer new and innovative advanced manufacturing technologies. In August, the Chancellor of the Exchequer invested £536 million in the High Value Manufacturing Catapult, which, together with the £107 million announced by the Prime Minister at the July Regional Cabinet, means this Government has invested £643 million in supporting British manufacturers to conduct R&amp;D and maintain their position at the cutting-edge of technology.</p><p> </p><p>This is possible because Government has invested an additional £7 billion in research and innovation since Autumn 2016 – delivering the biggest increase in public research and development investment for 40 years and demonstrating clear progress towards the Government’s ambition to raise investment in R&amp;D in the economy to 2.4% of GDP by 2027</p>
