At the upcoming WMF2018 Annual Meeting, participants will explore the direction the manufacturing industry is taking, the level of technological innovation and the skills the new workforce will need to acquire. This will help primary stakeholder groups to embrace the Sustainable Development Goals of the 2030 global industrial agenda.

Against this backdrop, the project’s mission is to facilitate dialogue and activities towards a shared common vision to solve global manufacturing challenges through cooperation and collaboration, considering the different perspectives of stakeholders from industry, academia and government. The WMF2018 Annual Meeting’s organisers have invited speakers from Europe, China, Japan, South Africa, South Korea, the United States and many other countries.

During the two-day Annual Meeting in Cernobbio, Italy, international leaders will highlight the role of manufacturing up to 2030 and how digital transformation contributes to economic well-being and societal advancement.
