Valuechain head overseas for Innovate UK’s Expert Mission to Canada

8 Jan 2018

Last month, Valuechain CEO Tom Dawes flew to Waterloo in Canada as part of Innovate UK’s Advanced Manufacturing Expert Mission. Tom was invited to attend by the National Research Council Canada and Knowledge Transfer Network, on behalf of Innovate UK; and was alongside some of the leading spokespeople in the industry.

The missions forms part of Innovate UK’s global strategy; by providing the evidence base for where it should invest and providing opportunities for UK businesses to build partnerships and collaborations with key economies.

As Canada is one of the biggest countries innovating around Additive Manufacturing, Valuechain are well positioned, with our DNAam Additive Manufacturing Software, to join the hive of activity taking place.

With presentations lined up across key cities in Canada, the mission was a great opportunity to identify like-minded companies, complimentary areas and potential future R&D and business partnership mechanisms with the UK.

So, hearing that Valuechain had done work in digital manufacturing, KTN invited expert in digital manufacturing, Tom, to join the mission, knowing that this input would contribute to the mission’s success in achieving its important milestones. This also gave Valuechain the opportunity to meet with state of manufacturing innovation and key stakeholder groups, as well as discuss future potential opportunities in Canada.

Tom presented in front of Canadian advanced manufacturers, speaking about how they can use DNAam to provide complete traceability, and help scale their additive manufacturing processes. Referring to Airbus’ use of the system, DNAam can provide standardised best practice, repeatable business processes; to streamline the whole process, and help it scale throughout the supply chain.
