Alan Turing Institute High Value Manufacturing Data Summit

On 9 March 2016 the University of Warwick in conjunction with The Alan Turing Institute hosted the "High Value Manufacturing Data Summit". Launched in 2015, The Alan Turing Institute is charged with advancing data science research, which includes industrial collaborations that will ultimately produce societal and economic impact.

The Alan Turing Institute (ATI) is an independent not-for-profit, a joint venture (JV) of a five founder universities: Cambridge, Edinburgh, Oxford, UCL and Warwick, and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), the primary funder of the institute. Warwick, as one of the JV partners, is providing guidance on the priorities of the ATI with workshops and summits like this one.

The event was organised by Nathan Griffiths & Thomas Nichols (University of Warwick), with critical support from Warwick Conferences.
