New initiative to bring world leading manufacturing research, technology and experts together

The Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC)  is launching a brand new initiative, in partnership with the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority, that brings world leading manufacturing research, technology and experts together.

The £15 million funded programme aims to accelerate the implementation of innovative physical and digital manufacturing technologies into UK manufacturing and supply chains.

Based in the heart of Liverpool, the project will build a state-of-the-art re-configurable factory, with digital and physical test beds, to support local manufacturing businesses and provide new high value engineering jobs and apprenticeships.

The facility will utilise cutting-edge equipment, software and expertise to support organisations with the research and development of their products, manufacturing processes and technology.

The MTC is hosting a number of live webinars to introduce the vision behind the programme and the value it will deliver to manufacturing organisations. Manufacturing and supply chain companies, RTOs and academics are invited to be a part of the programme to provide requirements and use cases with the opportunity to shape the project scope or to become a potential solution provider for the Digital Manufacturing Accelerator ecosystem.

The MTC is hosting live webinars, including one specifically for supply chain engagement  on 9th July.

Watch and listen to the project leaders, Liverpool City Region Combined Authority and stakeholders discuss the project. You’ll also be able to ask questions and get involved during the interactive sessions.
