These introduce concepts of industry 4.0 and its applications. They highlight the opportunities and challenges that the adoption of emerging technologies in manufacturing present.

Industry 4.0 masterclasses

The Industry 4.0 masterclasses support businesses to gain a deeper understanding of industry 4.0 concepts and how these can be adopted to improve their business.

Decarbonisation Action Plan workshop series

With energy costs rising and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reporting becoming a requirement in some supply chains and local and export markets, manufacturers are increasingly looking to become cleaner and greener to reduce costs, remain globally competitive and continue to grow.

This practical 4-hour workshop will assist manufacturing leaders to:

  • understand the importance of sustainable manufacturing and how decarbonisation applies to your business
  • develop a list of GHG emission sources within your own site (Scope 1, 2 and 3)
  • learn how to calculate your GHG emissions and ways to reduce them
  • start a high-level Decarbonisation Action Plan that sets out goals and a strategy to reduce emissions on your journey to Net Zero
