Made Smarter Innovation – Sustainable Smart Factory (& introducing forthcoming funding)



Digitally enabled and data-driven process innovation can generate considerable energy and resource savings in the factory. Various drivers will only increase with time:

  • Customer demand for sustainably manufactured products is ever increasing
  • Energy and material costs are likely to increase and/or be more and more volatile over time
  • Ever-increasing legislative drivers reflecting government targets for carbon reductions.

We aim to inspire and enable exploration and uptake of this opportunity, plus raise awareness of a CR&D competition that Innovate UK are planning, so that businesses can start contemplating their applications and finding potential partners. Further build the network that can support this opportunity.

This session is open to those who can drive and facilitate action – manufacturers, technology developers, providers, and integrators, RTOs, data specialists, Life Cycle Analysis practitioners, etc.

You will gain an understanding of how deploying digital within the factory can yield energy and resource efficiency, and thus cost savings, competitiveness, and resilience. Hear about key enablers such as data. Attendees will also be able to hear about a competition that Innovate UK are planning in this topic.
