Manufacturing R&D Cluster Conference 2022: May 18-19

Advanced Manufacturing for a Sustainable Future: Fossil free production, Circularity in the value flow, human-centered manufacturing. Let us meet in Katrineholm to push these areas forward!

Production cluster

With a transition to more sustainable products and vehicles, we see increased focus on the manufacturing emissions. 

Production with fossil free energy, efficient resource utilization and smart maintenance is dependent on innovative manufacturing processes. We need advanced manufacturing and automation to improve circularity in the value flow and allow combination of manufacturing and remanufacturing lines.

  • How will the foundries of the future address fossil-free manufacturing?
  • How can Sweden excel in human-centered manufacturing?
  • How to calculate sustainability in a consistent way, including recycling?
  • Which competence centers do we need to supply the industrial needs the next 10 years?

The conference is organised by the clusters together with leading R&D performers in Sweden. Main organisers are the automotive industry in Sweden in collaboration with the Vehicle Components Group, RISE, SuPr/Södertälje Science Park, Production2030 and FFI.

Our vision is to develop economically, socially, and environmentally sustainable manufacturing systems that are capable of effectively supplying the market with innovative products of the future. For this purpose, the Swedish automotive industry has initiated a structure for coordination of research and development - The Swedish Manufacturing R&D Clusters.

We look forward to meeting you!
