UTS Business School is hosting a one-day Future of Manufacturing Forum which will explore the future of manufacturing in global markets and value chains in light of a rapidly changing economic environment.
For the developed world, manufacturing is a key source of innovation and competitiveness through R&D, new business models, skills development and productivity growth.
This Forum will be an opportunity to share research and ideas, with contributions on current issues and best practice. The focus of the forum is to address key challenges for the future of manufacturing nationally, regionally and internationally and how business leaders, academics and policy-makers propose to address these challenges.
The forum, which runs from 9am on Monday December 5 in Ultimo, Sydney, will tackle the key challenges for the future of manufacturing nationally, regionally and internationally and how business leaders, academics and policy-makers propose to address these challenges.
