Event description
In this webinar, we will showcase our latest research on the Midlands region and launch the ‘Future of Manufacturing Ecosystems’ workstream.

About this event

Overview:

UK manufacturing supply chains have been tested to their limits by the global disruptions of recent years, from Brexit to COVID 19 and the crisis in Ukraine. To regain competitiveness during this turbulent time, firms are urged to take stock of their supply chains and consider:

• What could the future of UK manufacturing look like?

• What are the associated business models?

• How can they leverage industrial digital technologies to create a more sustainable, responsible future?

Join us for an upcoming webinar, on Thursday 26 May at 12:00pm, examining the results of a survey of manufacturing firms in the Midlands region and launching the ‘Future of Manufacturing Ecosystems’ project. This is a joint programme between the InterAct Network led by Professor Jan Godsell (Dean of the School of Business and Economics, Loughborough University), Make UK and Midlands Engine.

The programme is Made Smarter Innovation funded and Economic and Social Research Council-led. It aims to identify the vision of 2040 for the UK manufacturing industry and develop practical roadmaps to support the transition.
