How “Fixing Our Future” came about
EIT Manufacturing aspires to leading innovation in the European manufacturing industry. Leaders need a vision, something they want to reach – something that is inspiring and positive, that can mobilise actors from the European manufacturing industry to buy into it.
To arrive at this vision, Teresa Hernandez, Innovation Manager at EIT Manufacturing, drew together a team of collaborators from the EIT Manufacturing supervisory and advisory boards, the organisation itself, and from its community of partners. “Fixing Our Future” is the result of interviews and workshops in which the collaborators looked at facts of current developments, drew insights from them, and created the narrative that you can now access in “Fixing Our Future”.
Integral part of EIT Manufacturing calls
The goal is that “Fixing Our Future” makes people take action. This is why EIT Manufacturing has made “Fixing Our Future” an integral part of the current calls such as the Call for Proposals 2023. Project teams should engage with the topics “Fixing Our Future” touches upon and provide their answer of how their project contributes to contributing to make Europe and its manufacturing sector more competitive and sustainable.
