1 October: Manufuture Conference
The MANUFUTURE 2019 Conference on Sustainable Smart Manufacturing will be held on October 1st in Helsinki. This year exceptionally, the ManuFuture conference is part of a 2-days event, the European Days for Sustainable Circular Economy, which aims to promote a low-carbon, climate resilient circular economy.
The Manufuture 2019 conference builds a bridge between the Horizon 2020 Framework Programme and the new Horizon Europe research and innovation Framework Programme, discussing among other things the effects of the structural changes between these frame programmes on the European manufacturing related cooperative research and innovation. Hence, the conference is important for the current Factories of the Future PPP and the next Made in Europe PPP.
Discussion themes include Artificial Intelligence – Research and Innovation Needs for the Industry; Circular Manufacturing and Sustainability; Manufacturing Europe: Towards an EU-Innovation and Education Systems for Manufacturing and the Society; and Emerging and Disruptive Technologies in Manufacturing.
