Made Smarter has recently announced the government plans to roll out its initiative nationally. The announcement by the Treasury demonstrates something we at Exel have always been passionate about, that UK manufacturing matters. It also represents a tremendous investment boost for our makers.

The roll out means hundreds of thousands more SME manufacturers will get access to technology advice, leadership, and skills training, as well as grant funding for digital internships and technology projects including hardware and software.

The Made Smarter Innovation programme is designed to champion the UK’s manufacturing revolution and is pioneering the development and integration of industrial digital technologies (IDTs), enabling the manufacturing sector to become more resilient, flexible, productive and sustainable.

The £147m investment, matched by a minimum of £147m from industry, will support makers and technology developers to scale ‘out of the box’ digital technology solutions. With up to 50% match funding and introductions to the right partners, you can reduce the risk and accelerate innovation.
