MADE General Assembly and Annual Meeting 2019

World class manufacturing in Denmark

Danish strengths driving digitalization
As a national network, the close cooperation in MADE between academia, RTOs and companies across geography, sectors and sizes has shown a will and way to accelerate the implementation of applied research and innovation. This unique collaboration delivers knowledge and technology that drive productivity and growth in Danish manufacturing.

MADE’s 2019 Annual Meeting will focus on the opportunities for Danish manufacturing to use digitalization to further strengthen its ability to develop and deliver the products and services the global market is expecting.

National and international inspiration
Industrial leaders from two of Denmark’s key export markets will be on the stage, as keynote speakers from Siemens and Tetra Pak will share insight on the application and development of digital solutions in production to create customer value and improve productivity in manufacturing.

A unique network
Since the launch of MADE five years ago more than 70 young researchers have taken part in the MADE applied research and development platform. Daily they are working in close partnership with industry and RTOs. Together with the industrial partners, the research teams and RTOs will present new results and novel solutions which will be of inspiration to both the smaller and larger company representatives.

A day to celebrate Danish manufacturing
The MADE General Assembly is a core event for the members to get updated news from the Board and the organization. Everybody is invited to participate in this session taking place before lunch.
Warming up for the afternoon with more results to be shared and network to be expanded.

We look forward to sharing knowledge with you!
