Supply Chain Discovery Day
Tue 23 May 2017, 09:30 – 16:00 BST
A unique opportunity to learn more about developing infrastructure that is fit for the future.
The UK Government has recently published their long-term plan to put research and innovation at the heart of industrial strategy. The green paper identifies the need for improved supply chain integration, low carbon manufacturing and resource efficient solutions to deliver infrastructure projects that are fit for the future.
Funded by Innovate UK, leading academics from WMG have joined forces with industry leaders Costain and Concentra, to investigate the use of supply chain analytics in the construction and engineering supply chain to increase efficiency and reduce costs. Their collaborative research project aims to identify the source of inefficiencies and opportunities for improved supply chain integration and the application of best practice techniques taken from other industries.
Hosted by WMG, the Discovery Day on the 23rd May 2017 will highlight the project findings and identify how the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund (ISCF) could support future collaboration between industry and academia to transform the management of infrastructure projects. The event will be particularly useful for those managing infrastructure projects in construction, water, oil, gas, rail, road and utilities industries.
The event is free to attend; however, places are limited so register early to avoid disappointment.
