Dr Jagjit Singh Srai Dr Jagjit Singh Srai

  • Leader, REMEDIES Commercial Supply Chain workstream
  • Head of Centre for International Manufacturing at University of Cambridge

Jag Srai heads up the Centre for International manufacturing at the Institute for Manufacturing, part of the University of Cambridge’s engineering department. The Centre’s focus is on how to design the manufacturing supply chain of the future by adopting new technologies across the end to end supply chain.

Jag’s interest in supply chains stems from a career in international manufacturing operations, primarily in Unilever, where he was responsible for the design, analysis and operation of manufacturing supply chains, working in the UK and across Europe, and taking on technical, and supply chain director roles internationally. A technology transfer project with Cambridge University led to him undertaking a PhD in supply chain design before moving to the university 15 years ago.
