Innovate UK, part of UK Research and Innovation, is to invest in 2 competitions to drive digital innovation in UK manufacturing supply chains. The funding is from the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund (ISCF).

The aim of this competition is to encourage the use of digital technologies to enable more efficient, productive, flexible, resilient and sustainable UK manufacturing supply chains. Projects should seek to integrate and optimise these supply chains.


- Your project must develop a supply chain integration or optimisation idea and carry out a project to test the concepts. It must focus on a digital application.

- Your project must investigate one or more problems that your specific supply chain is experiencing and develop ideas for digital technology solutions to address these problems.

- Increased understanding of the problems faced by the specific supply chain

- Tested proposal for digital solutions to address these problems

- Case study outlining the proposed digital solution, the results of the project, and qualitative and quantitative evidence of benefits identified
