A £250m investment fund from Innovate UK & the Technologies Mission Fund (TMF), launched by HMG/UKRI in March 2023, is bringing together businesses from priority sectors with AI experts and developers to foster an AI innovation network in the UK.


There are also many AI-focused UK programmes based in Manchester.


Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham, says: “Greater Manchester’s selection as one of three Innovation Accelerator regions demonstrates the Government’s confidence in our innovation ecosystem. These align with the sectors where Greater Manchester has emerging or established strengths, like advanced materials, artificial intelligence (AI) and diagnostics.”


Manchester has a strong academic AI community and a pipeline of talent. Three of its five universities have established research groups working in AI and data science. The city is home to AI accelerators such as the Turing Innovation Catalyst, Centre for Digital Innovation and the Manchester Technology Centre.


Working with our event collaborators Microsoft and these partners across Greater Manchester, Transport AI 2024 will provide space from innovative AI start-ups from across Manchester and the UK.
