Fourth Industrial Revolution All-Party Parliamentary Group
Supporting and promoting the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) in Parliament and encouraging government, parliamentarians, academics, the private sector, and other stakeholders to engage with 4IR-related issues
In adherence with the rules on All-Party Parliamentary Groups, while the House is dissolved, for the General Election, there are no Members of Parliament and therefore the 4IR APPG ceases to be an All-Party Parliamentary Group for this period.
Once Parliament is formally reopened in December, the APPG will look to reconvene all activity as soon as is permissible.
The All-Party Parliamentary Group on the Fourth Industrial Revolution was launched to encourage pro-active engagement with the policy implications of new and emerging technologies, and to raise awareness of the challenges and opportunities of the 4IR. In the coming years the APPG will focus on how the UK can lead the world in harnessing the 4IR for economic growth, tackle some of the big issues surrounding new and emerging technologies, and make sure that the 4IR consists not of changes that happen to us, but changes that work for all of us. The APPG holds regular events in Westminster, more details of which can be found on the events section of the website. If you would like to get in contact with the APPG then please click here.
The All-Party Parliamentary Group on the Fourth Industrial Revolution and our sponsors hosted a health-tech reception in February 2019 to explore role of new technologies in helping people live longer, healthier, and more fulfilling lives.
