A significant package of measures to help UK manufacturers seize the opportunities provided by emerging technologies will be published on Tuesday 28 July by Business Secretary Lord Mandelson.

Advanced Manufacturing – Building Britain's Future is part of the government's targeted strategies for key sectors and markets. The Secretary of State will announce targeted support which will encourage take up of new technologies and address specific challenges faced by the aerospace sector.

Advanced Manufacturing describes businesses which use a high level of design or scientific skills to produce technologically complex high value products and processes.

This work on Advanced Manufacturing builds on the government's 2008 Manufacturing Strategy and the New Industries, New Jobs strategy of April 2009, in which the government set out its broad framework for supporting the development of new industries and new jobs in Britain.

The package will also build on announcements made in the Low Carbon Industrial Strategy earlier this month.
