Made Smarter Technology Accelerator: designed for industry, made real by innovators

The Made Smarter Technology accelerator is looking for startups and scaleups developing solutions or products across future networks, immersive, artificial intelligence or distributed ledger technologies to join forces with some of the UK’s leading manufacturers to aid recovery, improve productivity, increase market capitalisation, export growth and ] accelerate sectors towards industrial net-zero.

Successful startups have the chance to access up to £20,000 in funding, receive support from industry experts and the opportunity to work directly with Sainsbury’s, GAF, Safran Landing Systems, O’Neills, Northumbrian Water Group, BAE Systems or Babcock, to address a real world industrial challenge.

Delivered by Digital Catapult, funded by UKRI through the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund, as part of the national Made Smarter movement, the Made Smarter Technology Accelerator is a national programme set to fast forward and shape the UK’s technology adoption directly into industry – driving innovation within manufacturing across four technology layers: future networks, immersive, artificial intelligence and distributed systems.
