GTMA expands team with supply chain expert from academia

​Dr Jennifer Johns has joined the GTMA team, bringing a range of expertise including research on technological change and innovation in global supply chain networks. She is a Reader in International Business at The University of Bristol.

GTMA has been working with Johns on a number of projects and is collaborating with the University of Bristol in funded research.

Johns recently published an extensive report examining the impact of additive manufacturing, or 3D printing, on manufacturing supply chains in the UK, Germany, and USA. The work of this project ties in with the ongoing GTMA engagement with the UK-based AM community and the organisation’s Reshoring initiative.

This collaboration will foster a stronger understanding of AM and supply chain strategies, providing some thought leadership and a platform to evidence development in these critical areas.
