Digital Decision Making to Reduce Supply Chain Risk and Improve Resilience

17/May/2022 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

The Integrated Review set out the Government’s current assessment of the major trends that will shape the national security and international environment to 2030[1].

It described the changing nature and distribution of global power and a more competitive and multipolar world. Over the coming decade it identified overarching trends important to the UK and the changing international order:

  • Geopolitical and economical shifts and the need to operate in 5 global regions
  • Constant systemic competition
  • Rapid technological change
  • Challenges requiring collective action, such as climate change, biosecurity risks, terrorism and serious and organised crime

It is within this socio-economic, climate changed world the Support Function must create Support Advantage and develop a resilient cost-conscious supply chain capability.


This event will explore ideas on how to exploit technological change and make better use of data to assure logistic support to a globally dispersed force.

The outputs and discussions will help develop MOD & Industry networks, enhance collaboration and uncover new opportunities to shape future Defence Support capability.


Places at the event are limited so please make sure you register. Location is The Engine Shed, Lincoln University.
