Advanced Forming Research Centre (AFRC) and Scottish Enterprise

Project abstract

This EU initiative aims to build a network of Regional Digital Manufacturing Innovation (RDMI) hubs; helping companies plan and prepare for the introduction of advanced digital manufacturing processes (known as Industry 4.0).

The partnership is supporting a six-month feasibility study to examine the business case for the establishment of a Scottish RDMI hub. CENSIS’s role involves developing the supply chain of SMEs in the SIS space that can bring expertise to the growing digital manufacturing ecosystem.

The Advanced Forming Research Centre (AFRC) is partnered with the University of Strathclyde and is part of the UK’s High Value Manufacturing Catapult.
