UK Electronic Alliance
|The UK Electronic Alliance (UKEA) was formed in response to the Electronics Innovation and Growth Team (EIGT) Report, which was published by the DTI in 2005.
The EIGT Report stated ‘that the fragmented, diverse nature of the (electronics) industry, and its difficulty representing itself to Government and vice versa, led to delays in addressing some of the key issues which impact on its performance’.
The UKEA pulls together the diverse group of trade associations within the electronics sector, presenting a unique opportunity for the electronics sector to speak with a co–ordinated voice. It provides a resource for government departments and agencies to enable them to have greater confidence when forming policy and support programmes for the sector. These activities require focused co-ordination, and typically would not be delivered through a “piecemeal” approach with each association “sharing” tasks or activities.
