Climate change, international trade disputes and global health emergencies such as the COVID-19 pandemic affect the manufacturing industry all over the world. Global supply chains were disrupted, demand for vital medical equipment could barely be met. These challenges made rethinking necessary. New approaches to production and collaboration as well as new business models were needed.
Counteracting and coping with unforeseen challenges to ultimately protect the population, requires large-scale planning for preparedness and response. Being able to rely on resilient infrastructures and companies in case of sudden changes and disruptions is of the essence to maintain business continuity. This is what the project CO-VERSATILE has focused on.
