Mapping existing UK Technology facilities


Guided by Innovate UK, the High Value Manufacturing Catapult and the Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN) have identified facilities, early adopters and champions across the UK that will signpost SMEs directly to focused capabilities of each organisation across the UK to create a UK Industry 4.0 portal.

This capability mapping project supports Made Smarter by seeking to identify key regional resources and organisations operating and providing services in the five technology areas:

  1. Artificial intelligence, machine learning and data analytics

  2. Additive manufacturing

  3. Robotics and Automation

  4. Virtual reality and augmented reality

  5. The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and connectivity

Why is it important to map UK tech facilities?

The portal helps to:

  • Raise industrial and public awareness of UK skills and capabilities;

  • Highlight regional strengths that could be shared widely on a national scale;

  • Demonstrate case studies of in-house capability and expertise;

  • Drive engagement between Industry, Universities and research and technology organisations through focused projects, placements and workshops.
