Digital tech report contributes to £147 million research funding boost for UK’s manufacturing sector

In 2018, UK Research and Innovation engaged the expertise of Cambridge Industrial Innovation Policy and senior academics from the Institute for Manufacturing to assess the real-world impact of digital manufacturing. The report ‘The Practical Impact of Digital Manufacturing: Results From Recent International Experience‘ examined the implementation of digitalisation in key manufacturing countries. The evidence contributed to a UK government funding boost of £147 million to support investments in digital manufacturing research.
