Discover a better future
Discover a better future
11th March, 9am
Relevant to your real-world manufacturing challenges, the morning of the 11th March will inspire innovation and leave you better prepared for the journey to net zero.
This Future Focus event will give you the opportunity to learn from experts, be inspired by business case studies and connect with support to help you implement change.
After hearing from our speakers, case studies and exhibitors, you’ll leave the morning with practical solutions to your manufacturing challenges and a deeper understanding of the resources available.
We’ve worked with Cornwall Manufacturing Group‘s (CMG) Jon Hurrell to ensure this event meets the needs of Manufacturers in Cornwall.
EXPERT SPEAKERS FROM THE NATIONAL COMPOSITES CENTRE
Experts Leah Rider (Head of SME Delivery), Jonathan Butt (Deputy Chief Engineer – Digital), James Helm (Technology Programme Manager – SME Projects) and Kyle Pender (Advanced Research Engineer – Sustainability) from the UK’s world-leading National Composites Centre (NCC) will deliver sessions on advanced materials, net zero, sustainability and industrial digitalization.
They will illustrate how collaboration and technology are key to overcoming supply chain disruptions and skills shortages, whilst enabling you to effectively implement your sustainability goals and realise real-life benefits.
NCC will introduce you to the range of resources accessible through the High Value Manufacturing Catapult, of which they are one of seven centres. There will be an interactive Q&A and panel discussion.
‘SKUNK WORKS’ FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF EXETER
Over the course of the morning, you’ll hear from Professor Allen Alexander and Jim Grant, University of Exeter, who will present on ‘Skunk Works’ – exploring how testing your manufacturing solutions can improve efficiency and reduce business costs.
