Event description
A free workshop as part of the Digital Manufacturing on a Shoestring project to understand the requirements of the food and drink sector.

About this Event

The Institute for Advanced Manufacturing would like to invite you to a free workshop on understanding the digital needs of food and drink small to medium enterprises (SMEs), and exploring opportunities for projects and collaborations with the University of Nottingham.

Digital Manufacturing on a Shoestring is an approach to increasing the digital capabilities of manufacturing SMEs via a series of low cost solutions. The aim is to rapidly accelerate digital use in SMEs by reducing both cost and complexity of solutions by making use of off-the-shelf technologies and open source software.

To achieve this, the University of Nottingham and the University of Cambridge need to understand and prioritise the digital needs of SMEs, to build solutions SMEs can apply themselves to shop-floor production and the wider business from off-the-shelf building blocks.

This event is focused specifically at food and drink SMEs who are looking to start exploring the applications of digital technologies, or are looking to take existing approaches further. The day will include:

  • An introduction to digital technologies for food and drink companies, including successful projects developed in collaboration with the University of Nottingham.
  • A Shoestring project workshop aimed at understanding the digital requirements and needs of food and drink SMEs.
  • A networking lunch.
  • A discussion of opportunities for project funding and continued engagement with the University.

Is this event for me?
