The Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC) is launching a new initiative, in partnership with the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority, which brings world-leading manufacturing research, technology and experts together.
Embarking on a 10-year mission, 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 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.
During the first phase of the project, estimated to take three years, manufacturing and supply chain companies, research technology organisations (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 (DMA) ecosystem.
To support the initiative, the MTC is hosting several live webinars from 18 June – 9 July 2020, inviting businesses and organisations to learn more about the project.
