Depending on which part of the programme you engage with, we'll be helping you to navigate four key stages of the digital adoption journey where organisations most often experience obstacles and challenges.
- Skills – Tackling gaps within your organisation and widening the talent pool
- Technical Capability – Exploring and evaluating the technologies you need to enhance productivity
- Application – Developing and implementing practical solutions within your business
- Resilience – Knowing how to prepare for and invest in the right emerging technologies
The programme is designed in four parts to address these challenges, so wherever you are in your digital innovation journey – there’s a part of HNCDI that could benefit you!
The Hartree National Centre for Digital Innovation (HNCDI) is uniquely positioned at the intersection of exciting new science and industry applications and will grow a community of discovery that combines advanced digital technologies and applies the scientific method to address key challenges across UK industry. The partnership between STFC Hartree Centre and IBM Research will bring together an established track record in applied research and innovation with a strong network of collaborators across industry and research communities built on shared interest and a goal to accelerate innovation by reducing the risk of exploring and adopting emerging technologies.
HNCDI is part of IBM's global Discovery Accelerator initiative, which seeks to accelerate discovery and innovation based on a convergence of advanced technologies by establishing research centres that foster collaborative communities and advance skills and economic growth through large-scale programmes. This programme builds on our previous Innovation Return on Research partnership with IBM Research, which was committed to solving industrial challenges and creating societal and economic impact.
