The second edition of the Global Manufacturing and Industrialisation Summit will be held in the city of Yekaterinburg, Russia – one of the world’s biggest manufacturing heartlands. #GMIS2019 will intensify the impact of innovation and Fourth Industrial Revolution technologies on the global manufacturing sector through the worldwide dissemination of knowledge, best practices, and standards.
The Summit, which will be staged in conjunction with the 10th International Industrial Fair (INNOPROM), will also advance the development of a roadmap for the future of manufacturing across the world, with economic and social development at its core.
#GMIS2019 will explore ‘nature-like technologies’, otherwise known as biomimetic design and biomimicry, and its role in building sustainable industrial development, and transforming the manufacturing sector through innovative solutions and sustainable design. The science of mapping design challenges to the natural world to find innovative solutions has led to some of the world’s most breakthrough inventions, creating a significant impact on the future of global manufacturing.
In 2019, GMIS will host engaging debates, sessions and workshops, and launch global initiatives designed to promote partnerships and inspire the next generation of manufacturing leaders, innovators and pioneers to build stronger and more sustainable societies, communities, businesses, and economies.
