Flanders Make Symposium focuses on the future of the manufacturing industry

On November 21st, Flanders Make is organising its second symposium. During the event, the trends that determine the future of manufacturing industry will be examined in more detail. The researchers will illustrate the results of their investigation and show specific cases.

The programme includes speakers as Jost Bernasch (Virtual Vehicle), Geert Ostyn (Picanol Group), Goedele Heylen (Niko) and Prof. Wim Vanhaverbeke (University of Hasselt). They will talk about topics such as smart products and production methods, competitiveness in a globalized world and innovation in a Flemish context. Philippe Muyters, the Flemish Minister of Innovation, will round off the day. 

Furthermore, Flanders Make will be introducing its mobile laboratory for flexible and people centred production. With this fully-connected research infrastructure, technology comes to the businesses.
