Chemical Sciences in Scotland
In May 2012 the Chemical Sciences Scotland Refreshed Strategy was launched.
Aptly titled "Platform for Growth" the refreshed strategy looks to build on previous work and successes of the past 5 years.
One of the aims is to increase manufactured exports from the sector by 50 percent by 2020.
Chemical Sciences strategy
In October 2007 the Scottish chemicals industry launched its Strategy and Action Plan. The Strategic Plan is the outcome of an industry-led, Scottish Enterprise-supported initiative, to safeguard and develop the chemical sector in Scotland.
The objective is "to ensure that a vibrant and competitive chemicals industry exists in Scotland in 20 years time".
The aims of the strategy will be achieved by implementing a 10-point plan covering five topics – sustainability, innovation, skills, reputation and investment.
80 high-level industrialists and academics are actively involved in the delivery of the industry strategy through these five topic groups.
