UK Steel - Powered by Make UK
Book now to reserve your space at your workshops of choice!
Keynote speaker Dr Rémi C Zante is the Head of Strategic Planning at the Advanced Forming Research Centre in the University of Strathclyde. He will be presenting the findings of his study on UK supply chains and identifying challenges in a post Brexit landscape. This will be supported by a speaker from a high profile OEM and then challenged by an opposing view, arguing that the UK may not require the traditional manufacturing environment.
With UK Steel’s Procurement Charter gathering strength with public and private sector commitments to include British produced steel in major projects, do the social, environmental and economic benefits of localised supply chains have real value in a modern economy?
This is your opportunity to challenge the speakers from the 1st workshop and say why we must strengthen our national supply chains or adapt to for the 4IR economy. Does your business rely on a strong localised supply chain? Is additive manufacturing changing the way you trade? Does manufacturing even have a role to play in the UK’s economic future?
This will be an interactive workshop giving you a chance to vote on and discuss these issues and more.
