Introduction and Welcome to Day 1 of NMS 2022

As COP26 brought into sharp focus the need to increase the pace of change in all aspects of society and industry, all eyes will be on our advanced engineering and manufacturing sectors to lead the UK’s charge to a net-zero future.

It was our manufacturers and advanced engineers that showed agility to step up and successfully navigate some of the key challenges presented by the COVID pandemic and few argue the case that our best way out of the climate hole we have dug is to innovate our way back out. If winning the race to net-zero is actually the societal, engineering and manufacturing challenge of our lifetime, it’s the work we do now that will secure the futures of generations to come.

This year’s National Manufacturing Summit, hosted by the MTC, will focus on how UK manufacturers of all sizes, the advanced engineering sector, academia, RTO’s and local, regional and national government can work together to successfully lead the charge and help the UK to win the race to net-zero.

NMS2022 will highlight how through collaboration, agility and innovation, UK manufacturers and its full range of stakeholders can scale the summit of climate change and enjoy the view of a brighter, more prosperous future for our advanced manufacturers and UK PLC.
