UK manufacturers wanting to adopt the latest digital technologies will be able to bid for part of a new £30 million R&D competition through the Government’s modern Industrial Strategy.

The R&D competition is part of the Manufacturing Made Smarter Challenge, funded through the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund, to support the transformation of UK manufacturing by encouraging the development and integration of industrial digital technologies.

The first competition of the Manufacturing Made Smarter Challenge will fund projects that will help transform the productivity and agility of UK manufacturing, ready for a fast start and with the potential for rapid impact. Projects must be business led and collaborative, with all consortia involving at least one SME.
