On the 11th of November 2015, HSSMI Ltd hosted their first Leadership Forum at The ArcelorMittal Orbit in Stratford (London). The High Speed Sustainable Manufacturing Institute (HSSMI) Ltd is a research institute closely working together with industrial companies and leading academic institutions to support manufacturing in the UK.

The subject ‘Manufacturing, the next five years; technology, knowledge building and political support; what is needed? How it is best delivered?’ was discussed on a panel with the following keynote speakers: Margaret Wood MBE ‐ Chairman, ICW (UK) Ltd; Professor Robert Allison ‐ Vice Chancellor and President, Loughborough University; Brian Holliday ‐ Managing Director, Siemens Digital Factory; Peter Domeney - ‎Manufacturing Engineering Director, Jaguar Land Rover. One of the main themes of the discussion involved the need of strengthening the manufacturing in the UK by making engineering more appealing to young people.

As part of the agenda, PhD students sponsored by HSSMI Ltd prepared posters outlining their PhD research. This was a great opportunity for networking and to communicate the research and also get valuable input from industry by representing HSSMI Ltd as well as the CDT-EI.
