§ Mr. Dalyell
asked the Minister of Technology if he will give details of his industrial liaison centres.
§ Dr. Bray
With financial assistance from my Department 66 Industrial Liaison Centres have been established at the universities and technical colleges, etc., shown below.
The centres are intended to help those firms which possess limited expertise in technological, and organisational, aspects of production, by indicating the means available for solving current problems, and by encouraging the introduction of new methods and techniques. The Industrial Liaison Officer's own university or technical college plays an important part in backing this assistance for industry, about one-third of all matters handled by the centres being eventually referred to the technical college, or university staff.
Location of Industrial Liaison Centres
(Unless stated otherwise each Centre is staffed by one Industrial Liaison Officer.)
