Nominations open for 100 Industry 4.0 Innovators
BusinessCloud is on the hunt for the UK’s top 100 Industry 4.0 Innovators.
Nominations have opened for the new initiative which will see experts and the general public vote for the 100 businesses which are transforming manufacturing and the UK's infrastructure.
To enter, complete the survey in the embedded form at the bottom of this article.
The UK’s manufacturing sector is a world leader in the adoption of digital technologies such as automation and augmented reality which can drive productivity and efficiencies.
Meanwhile the exponential rise of the Internet of Things is making our cities smarter and transforming how we design and implement infrastructure.
We are looking to shine a light on the true innovators in smart manufacturing; logistics and the supply chain; and smart cities and infrastructure.
To be considered for the 100 Industry 4.0 Innovators long-list – which will be voted on – businesses must be harnessing tech in a disruptive way and be able to demonstrate that. They may also have evidence of:
- high/fast-growing turnover
- workforce growth
- investment/high-profile backers
A panel of 10 regional experts will judge our long-list of nominations for each list before we open voting to the general public.
The final 100 ranking will be decided by a combination of the two. To suggest an independent judge, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Nominations close at 5pm on January 23rd 2020. Voting will take place from January 27th-February 9th, with the final rankings published online on March 9th and in the Q1 edition of BusinessCloud magazine.
BusinessCloud will also be running annual sector rankings in its other magazines. Nominations remain open all year round. These are:
