Welcome to

European Manufacturing Conference 2024!

The European Manufacturing Conference is a biennial event that brings together key players in the European manufacturing industry, including policymakers, industry representatives, as well as academia, research & technology organisations, startups, scaleups and innovators.

The three organisers EFFRA, EIT Manufacturing and ManuFuture share a common vision that cooperation is key in creating an enabling environment to address the most pressing challenges faced by the European industry and society today and tomorrow. 

 In 2022, the conference programme reflected, among others, the topics human centricity, green and circular manufacturing, connectivity and resilience. And this year, on 24 and 25 September 2024, manufacturing players will unite to address:

What does the future hold for Europe's industrial landscape? And how can we influence and shape it?

Throughout the conference, the programme will tackle several topics, aiming to meet the needs and interests of the manufacturing ecosystem: 

  • How can businesses respond to geopolitical shifts to advance their manufacturing strategies?
  • What innovative technologies and strategies are being employed to achieve net-zero emissions in manufacturing?
  • What are the potential benefits and challenges of expanding manufacturing operations beyond European borders, and how can cross-border collaborations drive growth and resilience?
  • What opportunities does the entrepreneurial ecosystem offer in the European manufacturing landscape?
  • How can manufacturing organisations anticipate and prepare for future industry trends and disruptions?

Panel sessions, fireside chats, keynote speeches and networking opportunities will provide ideal platforms for speakers, panelists, and participants to explore how emerging technologies and trends can accelerate sustainable innovation in Europe.
