EEF and Cambridge Institute for Manufacturing team up to offer 4IR guidance

10 May, 2017

The EEF and the Institute for Manufacturing (IfM) in Cambridge will team up at a major seminar next month to offer guidance from some of the UK’s leading experts on how to become a fully digitalised manufacturing enterprise.

On the 15 June this new seminar will bring researchers, professionals and manufacturers together to learn how to tackle the challenges of adopting digitised business strategy. There’ll also be topic discussions on how to transform business operations, as well as exploring the opportunities and solutions adopting 4IR has to offer for manufacturers.

Delegates will hear from a range of the IfM’s leading experts on 4IR including Professor Andy Neely and Professor Duncan Macfarlane, together with Phil Smith, Chairman of Cisco. Phil is one of the UK’s leading champions of innovation and digitalisation and launched Cisco’s British Innovation Gateway (BIG) programme, a legacy of London 2012, to spark nationwide ingenuity, ambition and growth through technology entrepreneurship.

They will also be joined by EEF CEO Terry Scuoler and EEF’s Consultancy Director, Martin Strutt, who said: “4IR brings with it a number of benefits to manufacturers, but not one business is the same. This seminar will give companies the chance to learn how to adopt the right solution to transform their operations, improve productivity, innovate and compete for greater customer value.”
