About the Digital Manufacturing Accelerator

The Manufacturing Technology Centre is launching a brand new initiative, in partnership with the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority, that brings world leading manufacturing research, technology and experts together. Embarking on a ten year mission, the £15 million funded project aims to bring together the best innovations of both physical and digital manufacturing technologies.

Based in the heart of Liverpool, the project aims to take build a state-of-the-art rapidly configurable factory that will support local manufacturing businesses and provide job opportunities for expert technology engineers and apprenticeships.

The brand new facility will utilise cutting-edge equipment and software that can support organisations with research and development requirements on their current systems, facility and technology. During the first phase of the project, estimated to take three years, end-users and supply chains are invited to be a part of the project and provide suitable use cases and requirement suggestions with the opportunity to shape the project or become a future solution provider.
