Industrial Digitalisation Review:

The Industrial Digitalisation Review was announced as part of the government’s new Industrial Strategy on 23 January, 2017. The review is chaired by Juergen Maier and is tasked to assess how the UK can benefit from the accelerated adoption of digital technology across advanced manufacturing.

The review is backed by the newly formed Productivity Leadership Council, which received support from the government in the November 2016 Autumn Statement.

Senior members representing Cisco, CBI, IBM, Accenture, GSK, GKN will be joined by MPs Nick Hurd and Greg Clark, who will receive the outputs of the review.

The Industrial Digitalisation Review leadership team will engage with large and small businesses alongside academics to see how the design, development and deployment of digital technologies can drive increased national productivity.

Getting this right is of fundamental importance to manufacturers, the people they work with and the communities in which they live.

We urge you to make your views known. Don’t feel that your voice will go unheard. Juergen and his board have committed to reflecting the opinion of companies right across the sector.

This is where to make it happen:

It shouldn’t take too much of your time, but the importance of doing it should be self-evident.

We will be interviewing Juergen Maier about the outcome of the review in the September issue of The Manufacturer.
