Making it smarter event

Join us on Tuesday, 18th January 2022 to discuss the digital transformation of the UK’s manufacturing industry.

We will be joined by Chris Philp MP, Margot James, Nick Gliddon and Verity Davidge, to discuss Making it Smarter: Using technology to rethink the capabilities of UK manufacturing. 

The manufacturing sector is undergoing a historic transformation of rapid advancement and innovation. Production now requires a complex set of communications and machines working in tandem to orchestrate the operations of the modern factory floor. The digitisation of manufacturing through 5G technology is set to enable key benefits such as smart production lines, predictive maintenance and more efficient supply chains, boosting productivity and growth. As a key component of the UK economy, exploiting the full potential of the UK manufacturing sector will be essential if levelling up is to be truly successful. 

This event will consider the future of UK advanced manufacturing.  It will be a chance to discuss the technologies needed to boost manufacturing capabilities in the UK, and how to unlock the potential of the industry.

Date: Tuesday, 18th January
Time: 11.00am – 12.00pm.
Venue: Online
