Bridging the Digital and Physical Worlds Executive Summary published

Bridging the Digital and Physical Worlds Executive Summary (PDF)

The Executive Summary (PDF) for the Bridging the Digital and Physical Worlds Beacon Project has now been published. It identifies a number of exciting trends which focus upon new and potentially disruptive business models. The report's recommendations seek to build platforms, communities and networks that will help to create new revenue streams, IP and businesses.

A podcast discussion provides a brief introduction to the final findings. Jeremy Davenport, Deputy Director of CIKTN, and Geoff McCormick, a Director at TheAlloy, review the journey that has taken place in a project based around the concept that industrial activity, or 'making things', is becoming democratised, with users increasingly central to the value chain as a source for ideas, solutions, investment and marketing.
