The Manufacturing Made Smarter Challenge, as part of the Industrial Strategy Challenge, aims to help the UK manufacturing industry to become more productive and competitive through innovation and adoption of digital and immersive technologies.

Digital technologies can enable companies to rethink and restructure the way they design and operate their supply chains and improve how they operate within end to end supply chains. Rapidly changing customer requirements and supply availability is driving the need for supply chains to adapt, become more effective, flexible, resilient and sustainable.

The current competition offers UK businesses the ability to apply for a share of funding for feasibility studies and/or proof of concept projects to research and develop innovative digital solutions to enable integration and optimisation of manufacturing supply chains.

Want to get involved?

This is an exciting opportunity to create new digital approaches using immersive technologies to optimise supply chains across manufacturing in a range of industries.

A briefing webinar is organised for 14th July that will provide full competition details.  Register to attend here.
