Date: Tuesday 14th May 2019
Location: Broadway House, Tothill Street, London, SW1H 9NQ
Refreshments available at 10am with a prompt 10.30am start; Lunch at 1pm

As part of the Life Sciences Industrial Strategy and Sector Deal, the Science Industry Partnership (SIP) has been commissioned to deliver a skills strategy report for the Life Sciences sector. This report will underpin the skills needs of the industry through to 2030, building a clear and robust evidence base of the current workforce to provide a forward-looking strategy.

The Life Sciences 2030 Skills Strategy will be an employer-led piece of work produced by the SIP Futures Group – a collaboration between SIP employers, Office for Life Sciences (OLS), Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry (ABPI) and BioIndustry Association (BIA).

To understand the main drivers behind the future skills needs of the Life Sciences sector, the SIP Futures Group is keen to engage with a broad range of key employers and stakeholders.

The main aims of the workshop are:

- To identify and highlight the emerging technologies which will drive the skills needs of the Life Sciences sector over the next decade
- To discuss solutions to ensure that there is sufficient quality training provision available to Life Sciences employers to fulfil their future requirements

Please could you confirm if you would like to attend this workshop by emailing

If there is someone else in your organisation for whom this workshop may be more appropriate, please could you pass this on to them.

If you are unable to attend the workshop, the SIP will also be gathering further evidence for this report by conducting a number of one-to-one consultations (either face-to-face or by phone) which will cover some of the main skills issues in the Life Sciences sector. If you would be happy to be considered to be part of the wider consultation process then please let Kate Hutchins know.

All participants will receive copies of the final report and recommendations.
