Mr Galdabini is addressing stakeholders at Re-Industrialisation of the EU 2016 Conference

28 October 2016

The advanced manufacturing business is changing. Machines, systems and factories are getting connected across borders. By analysing industrial data available along the global value chain, manufacturers improve the performance, energy- and resource-efficiency as well as safety of their products. New service-oriented business models are emerging with the aim of providing greater value for end-users. Large ICT companies invest more in the industrial internet, redrawing the boundaries of the manufacturing sector. To remain in the driver’s seat and keep its technological leadership, European advanced manufacturers need new skills for new business models. Under this light, Mr Galdabini’s speech sheds light on the changing manufacturing industry and its implications for the manufacturing workforce as well as education strategies with a focus on continuous training and new learning technologies.
