Polymer Innovation Network presents: 'The rise of the machines! ….myth busting Automation'
International Institute for Product and Service Innovation, WMG, University of Warwick, Coventry

Automation is a cornerstone of the UK's industrial strategy and seen as the cure-all to fix everything; from the productivity gap, to Brexit and our on-going skills and wages crisis. But.... "what does Automation actually mean?" "What is achievable and what is coming next?" "How might I use 'the rise of machines' to my advantage?"

We invite you to come and find out more on Wednesday 28th February 2018.

For those new to the Polymer Innovation Network (PIN), it's part of our wider Digital Manufacturing Network, for all users, makers and processors of plastic and has successfully brought this important community together to help bridge the gap between industry and R&D.

Global Supply Chain Debate 2018
IDL, WMG, University of Warwick (Day1) Panorama Suite, Rootes Building, University of Warwick (Day 2)

We’re putting the UK at the heart of global supply chains as we discuss different post-Brexit scenarios, at our second Global Supply Chain Debate on Tuesday 8 May 2018 in The Slate at the University of Warwick.

Hear expert opinions on supply chains beyond Brexit, including what opportunities global free trade could provide the UK and how negotiating with suppliers could improve competitiveness after leaving the EU.

You’ll also have the opportunity to see supply chains from a whole new perspective as we invite installation artists to present supply chains in novel and innovative new ways live at the conference.

The conference will include keynote presentations from industry leaders and is open to all supply chain practitioners, policy makers and academics to attend.
