26 March 2013

Academics, business leaders and technology experts to explore "Remaking Manufacturing" in western economies

The research elite from the world-renowned Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) will be in Vienna as guests of the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber from 22nd to 23rd May 2013. As part of the MIT Europe Conference 2013 , international academics, business leaders and technology experts will address “Remaking Manufacturing”.

Europe and the U.S. have higher labour costs than many other economies. If they are to compete in manufacturing in the global market, then they need to be more innovative and efficient—by creating new paradigms in manufacturing - something especially important to SMEs. Leading MIT researchers will present their insights into the most critical problems, and the potential of new movements such as Big Data, Collaborative Innovation Networks, Additive Manufacturing, Robotic Assistants and Virtual Factories..

Top MIT speakers such as Joseph Jacobson, MIT Media Laboratory and Michael Cusumano, MIT Sloan School of Management), as well as leading Austrian entrepreneurs like Armin Albert Rau, Managing Director TRUMPF Maschinen Austria, guarantee a formidable event.
