The University of Lincoln and GLLEP Manufacturing Board are pleased to welcome you to “Manufacturing Made Smarter”, the first virtual meeting of the Greater Lincolnshire Manufacturing Network. This inaugural meeting will kick-start our programme of interactive events, bringing together business leaders, industry specialists and academics to support the manufacturing sector across the region. Personnel from The Bridge will also be in attendance.

As well as introducing you to the team behind this new network, this event will outline what members can expect from GLMN and the year ahead.

The content of each event will focus on a prevalent topic or theme relevant to manufacturing, with our first being “Making Manufacturing Smarter” with digitalisation and Industry 4.0.

Our programme of knowledgeable speakers will offer their insights and experiences on this subject, including:

  • Darren Joint, Managing Director of Viking Signs and Chair of the Greater Lincolnshire LEP Manufacturing Board

  • Mike Hague-Morgan, Co-Owner & Commercial Director of Autocraft

  • Mini Saaj, Global Chair of Robotic Engineering, University of Lincoln

In this interactive session, we’ll work together to tackle important questions, such as:

  • How is the Industry 4.0 landscape looking in our region?

  • What are the challenges SMEs are facing in digitalising manufacturing processes?

  • What are some of the potential solutions?

  • Are there any funding mechanisms to support businesses developing digitalised processes?
