The UK Fluids Network and Leeds Institute for Fluid Dynamics (LIFD) are
hosting a launch event for a new report which for the first time details
the current value of fluid dynamics to the UK. The report analysis
provides key metrics including revenue associated with fluid dynamics
activities, the size and distribution of the workforce providing these
essential skills, the gross value added (GVA) to the UK economy and the
scale of research investment. The report also demonstrates that fluid
dynamics in the UK is significant in addressing its societal challenges,
including Net Zero, Levelling Up, Productivity and Resilience and UK
Capability and Global Reach.   

The event will include contributions from leading end-users from
industry, academia and government and there will be a discussion of the
future direction of fluid dynamics, and the support needed to
consolidate and build upon the UK's position as a world-leader in fluid
dynamics. There will be the opportunity to feed into a series of
discussions intended to shape the next steps in UK fluid dynamics.  

On behalf of the UK Fluids Network and LIFD, I would like to invite you
to attend this event.  

This virtual event will be held on the 15th September 2021, 16.00-17.30,
Zoom (joining instructions to follow).
