This free workshop in Ely on July 29th is for any SME manufacturer at any stage in their 4.0 journey. Manufacturing's fourth revolution is bringing massive changes and Opportunity Peterborough wants local manufacturers to benefit.


Are you Industry 4.0 ready?

Manufacturing's fourth revolution is bringing massive changes as processes become increasingly digitised with big data, autonomous robotics, Internet of Things, additive manufacturing and much more.

Opportunity Peterborough wants local manufacturers to fully benefit from these technologies so they can enhance productivity and their competitive edge.

  • sustainable business practices
