Digitalisation Webinar Series - Demonstrating the Art of the Possible



Hot on the heels of the launch of the UK digitalisation roadmap, IDE is running 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 demonstrate the impact of new digital capabilities to deliver results in an accelerated timeframe and improve productivity.
