Made Smarter

Inspiring the UK’s next industrial revolution

Formed following a nationwide review into digital technology in industry, Made Smarter is a national programme backed by world-renowned businesses and the UK government. We aim to drive growth amongst UK makers and advance the UK economy by improving the development and adoption of emerging technologies.

We have three key areas of focus: More ambitious leadership. More innovation in developing new technologies. And better implementation and adoption of those technologies. How will we do this? By building confidence amongst industry leaders with specialist training. By bringing researchers and makers together to boost innovation on an industrial scale. And by equipping makers with digital tools that make an everyday difference to their business.

Implementing these changes across the country will enable us to start the next industrial revolution and make the UK a global leader in the creation, adoption and export of advanced digital technologies.

The programme includes:

  • Digital Road-mapping Sessions with a specialist consultant to support digital adoption
  • Intensive Technical Support via a digital consultant or Technical Training via the National Fluid Power Centre
  • Digital Internships – an opportunity for undergraduates and postgraduates to bring their digital skills and knowledge to a business
  • Leadership & Management training for senior leaders
  • Lean 6Sigma Green Belt Training
