Episode 3: Ecosystems and Innovation
Industry 4.0 Ready podcast series
In this episode, we focus on the collaboration between government, industry and academia to drive digital innovation, industry competitiveness and sustainability in manufacturing. The COVID-19 pandemic accelerated the need for smart manufacturing capabilities. We explore how smart factory ecosystems helped in responding to COVID-19, and the role they could play in supporting the energy transition. Your host Nick Davis, UK Industry 4.0 Leader at Deloitte is joined by Rab Scott, Head of Digital at the University of Sheffield’s Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre, and Stephen Laaper, Smart Factory Leader at Deloitte US.
Ecosystem and Innovation
Ecosystems are becoming increasingly important as we think about how companies are addressing competitiveness and new capabilities, and ecosystem success can only be achieved when there are aligned incentives across a collection of organisations in an ecosystem.
