Second Platform Event of the RIM Plus 2015-2016

Time: Wednesday, 8th July 2015, 10:30

Place: Wales House, 11 Rond-Point Schuman, 1040 Brussels, Belgium

Hosted by Welsh Higher Education Brussels at Wales House, the second platform event of the 2015-16 Regional Innovation Monitor (RIM Plus) projects will seek to further focus the thematic discussions on various fields of advanced manufacturing that were initiated at the project’s launch event on 29th April. At the same time, it will broaden the discussion to consider the issues of opportunities to address new skills needs for advanced manufacturing and the challenges of leveraging the benefits of advanced manufacturing in the EU-13.

The workshop will bring together practitioners from various regions and will provide an opportunity to exchange views and liaise with potential co-operation partners while at the same time developing a broader perspective on the opportunities and challenges provided by advanced manufacturing initiatives. For policy makers and representatives of European regions, it will provide interesting specific insights as well as a good opportunity to gain a better overview of current trends and challenges in advanced manufacturing.
