The Manufacturing Made Smarter challenge programme is focused on the development of new innovations of digital technology within UK manufacturing. 

It will bring together innovative business and research organisations across the UK to collaborate to find new digital solutions. New innovations will connect UK manufacturers, helping to build their resilience and flexibility, improve productivity and become environmentally sustainable.

A £147m investment from the UKRI Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund (ISCF) will support the transformation of UK manufacturing capabilities through the adoption of industrial digital technologies.

By supporting collaboration across technology manufacturing and research organisations we will create digital solutions for some of the biggest challenges in UK manufacturing right now. 

Opportunities to collaborate and be at the forefront of cutting-edge technologies are available to UK-based researchers.
