Education, training, and research and development are the keys to the future prosperity of British Industry.
The high technical standards of the fluid power industry will need to be maintained and improved to ensure its competitiveness in the future. The need is for a wide range of disciplines varying from mechanical and electronic engineering to computing and administration.
To achieve this objective, companies are investing in basic and further training. There is a close co-operation with training boards, schools, colleges and universities. In addition, many companies are sponsoring practical research and development at universities and research establishments.
