The Future of Manufacturing in Europe
On 11 April 2019, Eurofound is organising a one-day conference on The Future of Manufacturing in Europe.
With key contributions from leading thinkers on the future of manufacturing, the event will bring together up to 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 will present its latest findings on the Future of Manufacturing while four panel sessions will provide a wide-ranging forum in which participants can share experiences, concerns and the benefits of Industry 4.0.
There will be an opportunity to hear different perspectives on possible developments regarding manufacturing in Europe, as well as to explore questions such as:
- Will robots replace humans?
- Are blue-collar jobs turning white?
- What skills are required for new jobs?
- What is the future of work?
The project ‘Future of Manufacturing in Europe’ (FOME), launched in 2015, concludes in April 2019.
More information, including the possibility of early registration of interest, will be available soon.
