We’re leading the UK’s ambitious plans to grow manufacturing through digital technologies, innovation and skills.

Made Smarter was created following an industry-led review of how UK manufacturing industries can prosper through digital tools and innovation. This independent review was commissioned by UK Government and led by Professor Juergen Maier CBE, Co-Chair of Made Smarter.

The Review made 4 key recommendations:

  1. LEADERSHIP - More ambitious, informed, and focused leadership for digitalisation. Find out about our Leadership training.
  2. ADOPTION - More widespread adoption of technology across supply chains, especially amongst SME makers. We understand that adopting new technology can be daunting but we can support you throughout your journey to digitalisation. Find out about our trusted adoption advice.
  3. INNOVATION - Faster innovation and creation of new tech, new companies and value-streams. We have a mission: to build a digital innovation ecosystem that funds and supports UK innovators and manufacturers. Find out about Made Smarter innovation.
  4. SKILLS - Upskilling workforces and identifying future skills. We can support your organisation and workforce to get the very most from digital tools and help you begin your journey towards digitalisation. Find out about our skills support.
