Klaus Beetz, CEO of EIT Manufacturing, will participate in the event by offering a masterclass on “European Manufacturing System: Towards a green and digital European Industry”, on November 2nd at 15.00h GMT+1.

Manufacturing is an integrated socio-technical domain, organising processes and logistics management frameworks through a methodical combination of best practices, while still allowing for continuous innovation and improvements. These manufacturing systems often determine the management philosophy as well as manufacturing operations strategy.

Therefore, EIT Manufacturing, in cooperation with its partners and network of contributors, is taking initiative by postulating the “European Manufacturing System” as a strategic objective for the European manufacturing industry, with universal implications. The “European Manufacturing System” is a vision to overcome traditional barriers, especially between enterprises, through an ecosystem approach. It features dual transition with sustainability as a decisive factor, while integrating emerging enablers, deep-tech technologies, e.g., artificial intelligence, quantum computing, smart sensors, VR/AR technologies, autonomous automation, trust-based cybersecurity and collaborative robots. But more important, people, with their experiences and knowledge, are the most valuable assets of the European industry leveraging a human-centred approach.
