Made Smarter aims to grow the manufacturing sector through digital technologies, innovation and skills. Sign up today for the Made Smarter programme.

Backed by world renowned businesses and the UK government, Made Smarter will improve the development and adoption of emerging technologies making a real, everyday difference to people from the boardroom to the factory floor.

Made Smarter was formed following a nationwide review into UK manufacturing that recommended three key changes – more ambitious leadership, more innovation in developing new technologies and faster implementation and adoption of those technologies. We’ll be boosting the digital skills of industry leaders, bringing businesses and research development together to develop new technology, and helping makers embrace new digital tools. In doing so, we’ll inspire the next industrial revolution and make the UK a leader in digital technologies.
