About this event

This event will now be held online.

The use of technology is fundamental to the growth of the manufacturing and industrial sectors. But how do we make sure that the technologies are applied in a way that is secure, not only within the manufacturing process but across the whole supply chain?

In this event, in partnership with Teesside University, we will be covering two exciting initiatives, the Industrial Digitalisation Technology Centre (IDTC), the Made Smarter Technology Accelerator and exploring the role cyber security has in their future. We will also hear from MakeUK, the organisation that champions and celebrates British manufacturing and manufacturers.

Teesside University has launched the Industrial Digitalisation Technology Centre to support SMEs in the Tees Valley to explore the opportunities Industry 4.0 technologies bring, such as the Internet of Things (IoT), big data analytics, modelling, simulation and sensor technology - creating an essential competitive edge that generates real value for businesses.

The Made Smarter Technology Accelerator is a national acceleration programme, set to fast forward and shape the UK’s technology solutions directly into industry, through the advancement and adoption of technology.
