Design it, Make it, Break it
International Institute for Product and Service Innovation, University of Warwick, Coventry

Runs from Wednesday, October 18 to Thursday, October 19.

A free, two-day workshop to help provide insight into the product design and development process using 3D Computer Aided Design (CAD) software. The workshop will also explore how Additive Layer Manufacturing (ALM) can increase the rate of product development and consider the use of Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to ensure your design survives real world scenarios.

This workshop will help SME manufacturers better understand 3D CAD and how ALM and FEA principles can stimulate new ideas and generate business growth.

Global Supply Chain Debate 2018

We’re putting the UK at the heart of global supply chains as we discuss different post-Brexit scenarios, at our second Global Supply Chain Debate on Tuesday 8 May 2018 in The Slate at the University of Warwick.

Hear expert opinions on supply chains beyond Brexit, including what opportunities global free trade could provide the UK and how negotiating with suppliers could improve competitiveness after leaving the EU.

You’ll also have the opportunity to see supply chains from a whole new perspective as we invite installation artists to present supply chains in novel and innovative new ways live at the conference.

The conference will include keynote presentations from industry leaders and is open to all supply chain practitioners, policy makers and academics to attend.
