At Innovate UK Business Connect, my role is to establish and promote Business Connect as the UK’s leading catalyst for innovation in the Industrial Technologies and Manufacturing Sectors to grow the UK economy. I support the Industrial Technologies and Manufacturing team in leading a large portfolio of projects including the Made Smarter Innovation Network, Driving the Electric Revolution and Analysis for Innovators (A4I).

I lead on our diverse network across the manufacturing landscape by engaging and building relationships with key stakeholders including industry, the High Value Manufacturing Catapults, Universities, Trade Associations and Regional Stakeholders to understand how we can further align to support UK manufacturing.

My career has been characterised by my passion for the UK manufacturing sector and my enthusiasm to connect research with industry for innovation. My academic background has focused on understanding UK manufacturing in the 21st Century through its competitive landscape, business strategy and skills agenda. I have a keen interest in UK textiles industry and technical textiles, where I champion UK brands via @meganmanufacturing on Instagram.
