Technology Touching Life - Summary of consultation responses

Supplementary content information

Technology Touching Life (TTL) is a potential BBSRC, EPSRC and MRC joint initiative to foster interdisciplinary technology development research across the engineering, physical and life sciences (both biomedical and biological).

Earlier this year BBSRC, EPSRC and MRC carried out a short consultation on TTL to continue our dialogue with the research community as we look to develop the TTL strategy further. This short document provides information on the key messages arising from the consultation.

These messages cover issues such as: the wide range of technological needs and scientific opportunities for TTL, factors for successful and lasting multidisciplinary research partnerships, as well as the need for a range of possible approaches for supporting TTL, as a multidisciplinary area.
