Digitalisation Webinar Series - Demonstrating the Art of the Possible



Hot on the heels of the launch of the UK digitalisation roadmap, IDE hosted a webinar series to demonstrate the art of the possible when digitalisation is applied in an intelligent, targeted, and agile manner to specific engineering challenges. Each webinar will focus on a collaborative research and development project, funded by IDE, which demonstrates the impact of new digital capabilities in delivering results in an accelerated time frame and improve productivity.

The recordings of the webinars can be watched below.
