Welcome to the annual Cluster Conference, for the first time in Södertälje, where we also have the possibility to offervisits at Scania's production site. In Södertälje you will take part of presentations from industry and institute, and you will have the same great opportunity to network as at the previous conferences in Katrineholm.
The climate challenges and ongoing electrification lead to new industrialization in Sweden, while resource shortages create great needs for reuse and recycling. Therefore the theme for this year’s conference is: “Circularity – next manufacturing challenges”.
Take part of how the major manufacturers and their suppliers tackle these challenges. Furthermore, results from a large number of research projects on production issues linked to circularity will be shared during the two days conference. You will also get the opportunity to interact with colleagues from the industry and the manufacturing research community.
See the program below
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.
