The Future of Manufacturing in Europe
On 11 April 2019, Eurofound held a one-day conference on The Future of Manufacturing in Europe.
The Future of Manufacturing in Europe is a pilot project proposed by the European Parliament and delegated to Eurofound by the European Commission (DG GROW).
With key contributions from leading thinkers on the future of manufacturing, the final event brought together around 80 industry experts, representatives of national and regional public authorities, social partners, academics and EU institutions to discuss how best to shape technological developments to promote economic growth and improve working conditions.
At the conference, Eurofound presented its latest findings on the Future of Manufacturing, while four panel sessions provided a wide-ranging forum in which participants were able to share experiences, concerns and the benefits of Industry 4.0.
The project ‘Future of Manufacturing in Europe’ (FOME), launched in 2015, concluded in April 2019.
