In the latest episode of the Sheffield Digital Podcast we interview Jonathan Bray, Deputy Head of Digital at the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC), and Jamie Hinton, CEO of Sheffield digital technology company, Razor.

Jonathan and Jamie tell the story of how Razor came to collaborate with the AMRC following an introductory event ran by Sheffield Digital, which came shortly after the former became one of our regional partners. They have gone on to create great things together and it’s so brilliant to hear about this success story first hand.

Razor are currently working on a groundbreaking project for the AMRC (which they can’t really talk about) and are a great example of a company that has taken advantage of having the AMRC on our doorstep to explore new partnerships and sectors.

In the second part of the show, we all go through some of the latest news from Sheffield’s digital sector, inducing

  • follow up from the third Sheffield Digital Showcase
  • Mel’s panel at the Tech Nation Round Table
  • Tech, Set, Go – a new project to attract different people into tech
  • AR’ City – Sheffield’s 1st Playable City Festival
  • The return of SmartSheffield and Sheffield Content Club

Enough of this chit chat. Off you go to get your headphones and listen in to what is a smashing show.
