Digital Horizons: Preparing Your Business for the Fourth Industrial Revolution

About this event

Digital technology is widely seen as the key that will unlock the UK’s productivity puzzle; helping to create a new generation of efficient, lean and innovative SMEs in doing so. As we move towards so called “Industry 4.0”, the Hull & East Yorkshire Local Enterprise Partnership will explore the role of digital tech, industry solutions and skills within the region’s economy, and will showcase the support available for local businesses on their journey to Industry 4.0 and increased productivity.

With a panel of speakers from industry, academia and government, this event will inform and inspire, and will also hear from some support schemes and providers that are currently helping businesses to progress on their journey to Industry 4.0.
