World Manufacturing Forum in May 2011
From 16th till 17th May 2011 the IMS 2020 project consortium organises the "World Manufacturing Forum 2011". Interested representatives from industry and science can apply for participation.

In Cernobbio, at the wonderful surroundings of the Lake Como, decision makers will meet to discuss emerging trends in industrial innovation and global manufacturing. The focus of the event will be on the role of business and public policy in carving the right strategies for a sustainable future.

The World Manufacturing Forum offers a platform for debate among decision makers. How to achieve a low-carbon economy? How to decrease the use of non-renewable resources in industry? Which skills and competencies will be needed for manufacturing in 2020? How to create better workplaces? What is the role of national industrial policies in globally-driven economies? Around these themes, the 2011 World Manufacturing Forum aims to build a consensus strategy for a better future characterised by global sustainable development.
