The UK’s manufacturing sector accounts for £192 billion of economy output with 44% of our global exports worth over £273 billion to the UK economy. Adopting advanced digital technologies within the manufacturing industry is key to strengthening the UK economy and aiding recovery, improving productivity, increasing market capitalisation, export growth and accelerating sectors towards industrial net zero.

The Made Smarter Technology Accelerator is a one of a kind programme designed specifically for the UK’s manufacturing industry to drive innovation across four technology layers: future networks, immersive technologies, artificial intelligence and distributed systems.  It enables the UK’s pioneering technology innovation community to join forces with some of the UK’s leading medium and large industrial businesses to develop solutions to industry-set challenges. The programme provides the funding and a platform to produce industry transforming prototypes, proofs of concepts and minimal viable products in order to drive productivity, digitalisation and innovation to push forward the fourth industrial revolution.

Join us on Thursday 7th January where KTN’s digital manufacturing expert Nicole Ballantyne will speak with Innovation Partner at Digital Catapult, Justin Cross to explore more about the benefits of joining acceleration programmes and the opportunities the NEW Made Smarter Technology Accelerator offers startups and early stage SMEs – plus we’ll find out who the seven Industry Challenge Owners are.

This is an opportunity for the UK digital technology community to find out more about the Made Smarter Technology Accelerator, why they should sign up for it, what’s involved, who they will be working with and what will success look like.
