Imagine – Great Ideas Made Real
Innovation has the power to transform life, to grow businesses and to build economies. Innovation needs collaboration between government, academics and businesses to flourish. Many of the world’s major scientific and medical breakthroughs, industry firsts and cutting-edge designs and technologies, both past and present, began in the UK – helping to give it an international commercial lead across many sectors.
‘Imagine – Great Ideas Made Real’ is a film exhibition put together by UK Trade & Investment to highlight to international viewers some of the myriad innovations that have helped make Britain truly Great - from the pioneering inventions during the Industrial Revolution, to the state-of-the-art processes and techniques developed for today’s digital age.
Whether it is the development of IVF, the invention of the world’s first computer or the design of high-performance cars, the UK’s track record in innovation is second to none – making it the ideal supplier and partner for markets across the globe.
This website gives details of the innovations showcased in ‘Imagine – Great Ideas Made Real’.
UK Trade & Investment would like to thank BBC Worldwide for their support in the creation of the film 'Imagine - Great Ideas Made Real'
