Made Smarter has an integrated approach across leadership, skills, innovation, and adoption. The Innovation Challenge focuses mostly on research and innovation across multiple sectors and how digital technologies such as AI, Robotics & Automation, Additive Manufacturing, AR/VR, IIoT, and Digital Twins can make the manufacturing supply chain processes more efficient and productive, whilst creating company growth.

The Made Smarter Research Centres and Innovation Hubs represent a key component in the UK’s approach to commercialise the emerging technologies and creating that national level growth element through creating early-stage, transformative innovative ideas, that cover both the technological and societal aspects. The centres and hubs target a specific area to drive that growth and collate engagement across the entire innovation landscape.

The webinars are a platform to come learn, ask questions, network, and form connections with people across industry, academia, and government.
