      When you see significant tax relief and investment in areas such as the UK film industry, surely the engineering sector deserves more government investment and incentives?

      Do you think the UK government and governments around the world do enough to help the innovative engineering sector?

      If governments are keeping the higher education in the country free, it also counts as a helping hand towards engineering, I think. So, the European universities usually offer free education (usually in their own language) and that kind of allows more students to be able to study bachelors and master instead of going through a trainee school (technical school) and just end up with a job.

      Governments in few countries (eg Germany) also provide research and education funding for good research projects. This motivates researchers from all over the world to contribute to the research in that field. This also in a way counts as contributing to innovation.

      However, I honestly don’t think it is enough. There is a lot of money used in research and development in every country. But, most of it does not come from the government. The government of UK could do a lot more by reducing fees for students who are not residents of UK or EU.
