WEBCAST: COVID and production: How should industry respond?

Fighting the spread of COVID-19, many countries have implemented severe disease control programs. Global supply chains for industrial products were hit hard by these measures and have nearly  collapsed. Governments anxious to make their economies more resilient, and businesses hedging future risks, are now looking at bringing back some of the offshore manufacturing. For years, smart automation, 3D printing, and AI have promised to usher in an industrial revolution that would make this commercially viable. But is technology really ready? And are companies prepared to adopt it? This Science|Business public webcast will explore the current status and discuss how immediate EU emergency measures and the next Multiannual Financial Framework / Horizon Europe can help close any remaining gaps.

On Wednesday 13 May, join the next Research Futures webcast focusing on COVID & production.
