What are the differences between challenges and themes?

Challenge setting (manu)

Through the existing work and research with Made Smarter we have identified five themes.

Challenges will sit within one of these five themes, requiring a clear demonstration of scalability, innovation, sound business case and impact on the manufacturing industry in the UK. Industry Challenge Owners will set a focused business challenge their organisation is facing and have it solved through an industrial open-call, then down-selecting and working with innovative startups to have two exciting, cost effective, new prototype solutions built for their use.
