  • Digital Catapult NI, an innovation initiative that was launched in October to support the growth of digital technologies in Northern Ireland, and Seagate Technology, a multi-billion dollar technology company with a nanotechnology facility in Derry, have joined forces to launch an open innovation workshop centred around digital manufacturing.

    The Seagate Pit Stop is a two-day collaborative workshop that will take place on 13th and 14th June at Seagate’s Springtown Facility and the City Hotel, both of which are located in Derry. The aim of the Pit Stop is to identify challenges and opportunities for optimising tooling performance, process efficiency and product quality.

    Startups, SMEs and academics can all apply to take part in the open innovation workshop, with the chosen applicants collaborating with Seagate team members, business experts and hardware specialists to

    - Develop a common understanding of Seagate challenges within the context of digital manufacturing
    - Identify areas where solutions could positively impact manufacturing tooling performance, process efficiencies or     end product quality
    - Explore how solutions could be integrated into Seagate manufacturing operations.

    Seagate and DigiCatNI are particularly keen to receive applications from companies or researchers that are working with artificial intelligence, data infrastructure, data visualisation, Internet of Things or modelling and simulation technologies.

    However, potential applicants need to get their skates on - the deadline to apply for the Seagate Pit Stop is midnight on Friday 12th May 2017.
