Cambridge Industrial Innovation Policy (CIIP) brings together the Centre for Science, Technology & Innovation Policy at the Institute for Manufacturing, the Policy Links Unit from IfM Engage and the Babbage Policy Forum. Our work is based around what we call industrial innovation policy, a policy domain that focuses on the interplay between technology, innovation and industrial competitiveness. CIIP is based at the Institute for Manufacturing, a division of the University of Cambridge’s Department of Engineering.
