In a move that is akin to Trump's America First policy, McLaren have announced a significant investment in Sheffield, but if you dig deeper in truth it is a no brainer.

Sheffield has created a niche in advanced manufacturing and encouraged the likes of Boeing to invest in its research facilities linked to the university.

Following the UK government's Green Paper on its industrial policy, the focus must be on this link between manufacturing hubs of excellence and collaboration in research between universities and businesses. These links create tangible results and, consequentially, the development of highly skilled graduates.

The UK government should take note - this is their Green Paper in action.
