21 July 2021

Jointly presented by UKMSN+ and DSM+ projects, the event is targeted at professionals with an interest in sustainable manufacturing

About this event

Manufacturing firms are embracing the opportunities of circular economy approaches as a means to save costs, prevent disruptions in materials input and generate additional revenue from waste streams. Surface manufacturing is important: surface-initiated effects cause more than 90% of all engineering product failures (wear, corrosion or fatigue). IDTs are providing a significant opportunity to the UK’s industrial economy. Industry 4.0 technology can facilitate sustainable manufacturing and circular economy practices. If you have an interest in manufacturing and sustainability, then this event is for you!
