Made Smarter Innovation Showcase

Revolutionising UK Manufacturing: The Made Smarter Innovation Challenge

Launched in 2020, the Made Smarter Innovation Challenge is a key player in the government's Industrial Strategy Fund (ISCF). Its mission was to propel the UK's manufacturing sector into the future by harnessing the power of industrial digital technologies (IDTs). 

The goals were clear: 

· Sustainability Leadership: Boosting the industry's environmental footprint through increased resource reusability, reduced waste, and lower carbon emissions. 

· Economic Powerhouse: Driving a £2.3 billion rise in Gross Value Added (GVA), creating high-skilled jobs, and propelling a 30% productivity increase. 

· Manufacturing Redefined: Achieving a 4.5% decrease in carbon emissions and a 25% reduction in manufacturing waste, solidifying the UK's position as a global leader in sustainable, efficient manufacturing.
