GBIP in India: Advanced Manufacturing

Brought to you by Innovate UK EDGE

The Global Business Innovation Programme (GBIP) in Advanced Manufacturing, with Pune and Bengaluru, India is a funded offering delivered by Innovate UK EDGE, to help innovative UK businesses explore global opportunities to grow and scale.

About the event

This initiative is relevant for businesses in the advanced manufacturing sector, focused on delivering digital manufacturing solutions, such as:

- Digital design for sustainable product development

- Industrial digital technologies for process efficiency and productivity optimisation

- Predictive maintenance (PdM), condition monitoring, inspection, and testing

- Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) and data technologies

- Robotics and automation

- Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and connected factories 

- Augmented Reality (AR) & Virtual Reality (VR)

The programme will include a visit to Pune (the manufacturing, industrial and educational hub of India and 2nd largest city in Maharashtra), and Bengaluru (innovation and startup hub and capital of Karnataka). Both cities have well-developed innovation communities and ecosystems for digital manufacturing:

  • Pune counts four universities, 200 colleges and several Industrial parks such as Hinjewadi IT park and IndoSpace
  • Bengaluru is home to some of the largest heavy engineering industries backed-up with a strong IT, R&D and startup ecosystem.  

These areas of interest identified reflect the opportunities for participation and joint working relationships between the UK and India, and support the wider work in both cities by other parts of the UK government innovation ecosystem.

How does the Global Business Innovation Programme work?

The GBIP is structured around three main phases and each business will have a designated Innovate UK EDGE Innovation & Growth Specialist to support for the duration of the offering, including developing an action plan to capitalise on the opportunities identified.

The three main phases of the Global Business Innovation Programme are:

Phase 1: Getting ready for the market

Pre-activity briefing workshop to build knowledge and a deeper understanding of the Indian market, network with the other participants, and identify challenges and opportunities including how to do business effectively, develop cultural awareness, protect your intellectual property, and improve your pitch when meeting with various potential partners (one-day in-person workshop).

Phase 2: Visiting the market

Explore the innovation, R&D, and business opportunities in India through meetings with key companies, potential partners, and other relevant stakeholders (five-day market visit to Pune and Bengaluru, India).

Phase 3: Maximising the opportunity

A post-visit workshop and one-to-one support from an Innovate UK EDGE Innovation and Growth Specialist to help your business take advantage of the opportunities identified.

Application Deadline: Thursday, 16th June 2022, 3pm
