IN4 Access - Industrial Digital Accelerator

IN4 Access, a ground-breaking joint venture business with the University of Central Lancashire in collaboration with BAE Systems, is focused on using disruptive technology to streamline SME manufacturing processes through the upskilling of leadership teams.

The Industrial Digital Accelerator programme is designed to unlock innovative new products and services and uncover business growth opportunities using industry 4.0 technologies.

Working in collaboration with Lancaster University, part of the GM AI Foundry, we have created a fully funded, ground-breaking 3-month programme, with six hybrid sessions combining online and in-person learning and delivered once every fortnight.
