University of Salford

The University of Salford is providing technical assistance to businesses around the specialist subjects of AI, cyber security, industrial digitisation and immersive technologies to help businesses to transform, innovate and become more commercially viable.

We’re developing an online digital skills portal aimed at senior business managers.

The portal will:

  • Provide inspiration on what technologies are available that could enhance your organisation
  • Help you to understand what skills are needed to implement these new technologies

We’re also aiming to upskill individuals new to digital around the four technologies to enable them to become more employable and look at new career prospects in a changing world.
