The event will take place in Luxembourg, 23-24 November 2015.
The EU has defined a strategic objective to boost reindustrialisation
and increase the manufacturing industry’s current GDP contribution of
approximately 16% to as much as 20%. In order to succeed, it is
essential to optimise the use of key instruments such as the European
Structural and Investment Funds and Horizon 2020 and widen the access to
finance for new manufacturing ventures as well as established companies
with high growth potential on global level.
Manufuture 2015 will:
- Assess manufacturing research and development progress in Europe compared with global competitors
- Define the conditions needed for successfully reindustrialising Europe
- Identify and endorse new policy instruments, business models, support mechanisms and technologies
- Develop recommendations for policy makers
