From 5th December 2022, Innovate UK travels to Türkiye to focus on potential markets for collaboration in Advanced Manufacturing.

Over the next decade, Türkiye is expected to invest between $1 to $1.5 billion annually, to integrate industry 4.0 solutions (referring to the fourth industrial revolution and the digital transformation across manufacturing industries) into the manufacturing process. This Global Expert Mission (GEM) intends to assess the potential interest and opportunities to establish connections with the Turkish advanced manufacturing ecosystem and will focus on how materials and manufacturing organisations can be more sustainable and resource-efficient, leading to increased resilience and/or technological advancement.

Innovate UK will bring together a group of UK experts to engage with leading businesses and academics in Türkiye to explore areas for collaboration. The GEM provides a platform for businesses, universities and government agencies to engage with key stakeholders from the advanced manufacturing community in the UK and Türkiye, with the aim of fostering long-term collaboration and partnership.

The team are looking forward to expanding international collaborations and will report back next month. Follow us on Twitter: @KTN_Global and #advancedmanufacturingGEM.
