The Technical Innovation Group, powered by PA

We are helping Land Rover BAR to harness advanced expertise and technologies.

Contact us

In 2015, PA and Land Rover BAR launched the Technical Innovation Group (TIG) to bring together the best of British industry to contribute to this unique technical and sporting challenge.

The TIG steering group, chaired by PA, guides the existing design team with an external, world-class, multidisciplinary research and development group.  It allows the team to rapidly develop, prove and apply new technologies.

PA's technology and innovation experience

The pace of technological innovation shows no signs of slowing, technology's impact on the way we live is deeper than ever and networks of computers, people and organisations are creating new opportunities (and threats) for businesses. PA helps organisations to optimise their internal and external innovation, and their research and development capabilities, to keep them ahead of the game and deliver more value to their businesses.
