    CW4.0 is a fully-funded programme of support for manufacturers in Cheshire & Warrington to help SMEs explore and adopt industrial digital technologies – the project is due to end in June 2023 so please don’t delay in getting in touch.

    Part funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), CW4.0 brings together the combined expertise and capabilities of the Virtual Engineering Centre (University of Liverpool), Liverpool John Moores University, the Science and Technology Facilities Council and the Northern Automotive Alliance.

    With over a decade of experience helping manufacturing businesses to explore, adapt to and adopt new technology, CW4.0 brings together the same partners that delivered the highly successful LCR4.0 project in the Liverpool City Region. This project delivered support to over 300 companies and was widely recognised as a national example of best practice.

    CW4.0 helps manufacturing SMEs in Cheshire & Warrington accelerate opportunities for growth and investment using digital technology. Through fully-funded, hands-on support and expertise we enable manufacturers to develop smarter processes and products, solve problems, seize opportunities and stay ahead of the competition by adopting new technologies emerging from the fourth industrial revolution (Industry 4.0).

    We provide free access to a comprehensive range of facilities, technologies and experts.

    Let CW4.0 be your R&D team. Integrating digital technology into your business can make you more productive, efficient, and relevant to the needs of your customers.

    CW4.0 will help you understand where to start when considering digital technology and how to successfully implement it in your business.
