About TechWorks

TechWorks is the parent organisation of AESIN and currently has over 300 members.

Our members span all sectors from IoT, automotive, manufacturing and power electronics and offer every kind of service from cleanroom suppliers to software designers, recruitment agencies, car manufacturers and everything inbetween.

Technology innovation has changed and is changing our world at an enormous rate creating new opportunities across all areas of industry and commerce. With this whirlwind of change comes huge political and societal changes, disrupting the established norms in all walks of life.

TechWorks is a new type of industry association at the core of the UK deep tech community with an ambition to harness our fantastic engineering and innovation to develop the UK’s positon as a global technology super-power.

TechWorks operates beyond established silos by:

  • Creating dynamic, connected technical and business communities to empower innovation and collaboration, supporting business growth and investment
  • Identifying the critical common challenges and leading responses to tackle them
  • Developing the UK tech ecosystem and partnerships across industry, academia and government to ensure the UK is amongst the best location globally to start, build and scale a Deep Tech organisation

    Tech-heavy businesses need to wrestle with an incredible level of complexity and an ever-increasing pace of change. Through the proliferation of electronic systems, everything is now becoming smart and connected. Many of today’s tools, processes and practices are no longer fit-for-purpose and organisations risk rapidly losing competitiveness. There is substantial disruption in every business sector but this also brings opportunity.

    Not only are we dealing with technology and market changes; rarely in recent memory have we experienced such political uncertainty too. The Prime Minister has stated her intention that Government will step up to a new, active role that backs business and yet is also clear that industry is expected to take the lead. Doing nothing is not an option and we need to take leadership to secure our own future.

    TechWorks has been formed in response to these changing dynamics. Our ambition is to significantly enhance the UK’s position as a leading node in the global technology development ecosystem.

    Our starting point is that deep technology development is critical to the UK’s future and yet we continue to wrestle with a lack of recognition and support to help achieve this ambition. We need to address this starting from within our industry and several of the most successful technology business leaders in the UK have agreed to lend their support to help steer us towards this goal.
