Mark Greatrix, Associate Director at Waldeck has joined the steering group of an ‘Industrial Digitalisation Project’, which aims to identify and close skills gaps in digital literacy across a variety of employment sectors.

Mark, who spoke at the launch event in May, has joined the steering group, led by the University of Lincoln, to share our expert domain knowledge in the field of digital in the face of a significant skills gap in our industry and across other industries.

Kicking off the project was the first steering group meeting held today (7th June), which comprised of industry leaders from a variety of companies, including; Siemens, Anglian Water, United Lincolnshire Hospitals, Teledyne e2v and Micrometric.

Mark Greatrix, Associate Director and Head of Research and Development, said: “It’s so important to plan for the future and with digital and technology at the forefront, we need to align this across all industries.

“Through this project, we aim to equip engineers and workers with the cutting-edge digital skills that can drive forward a digital and technology-enhanced workforce and it’s great to see so many leaders across a variety of sectors come together to help and support the University of Lincoln achieve this.”

The next steering group will take place next month.
