The MANUFUTURE Visi­on 2030, fol­lo­wed by the MANUFUTURE Stra­te­gic Rese­arch and Inno­va­ti­on Agen­da (SRIA), are fresh examp­les of the MANUFUTURE community’s work. The MF2019 Con­fe­rence will the­me-wise align with the prio­ri­ties of the MANUFUTURE 2030 Visi­on and SRIA, offe­ring time-wise a good oppor­tu­ni­ty to dis­cuss the imple­men­ta­ti­on of the MANUFUTURE 2030 Visi­on and SRIA, the prio­ri­ties of main indus­tri­al sec­tors, and the nee­ded actions at Euro­pean, natio­nal and regio­nal levels.

The MF2019 con­fe­rence builds a bridge bet­ween the Hori­zon 2020 Frame­work Pro­gram­me and the new Hori­zon Euro­pe rese­arch and inno­va­ti­on Frame­work Pro­gram­me, dis­cus­sing e.g. the effects of the struc­tu­ral and con­ten­tu­al chan­ges bet­ween the­se frame pro­gram­mes on the Euro­pean manu­fac­tu­ring rela­ted coope­ra­ti­ve rese­arch and inno­va­ti­on. Other 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.
