Cross-sector collaboration opportunities spur creativity and are necessary to find solutions to problems.

So we’re building them by bringing together stakeholders, industry and partners within the Made Smarter Innovation Network.

This will form a vibrant, cohesive and growing community of industrial digital technology (IDT) providers, developers and users to connect the UK manufacturing ecosystem.
