Technology transfer: paving the way for advanced manufacturing

25 February 2015, Brussels

Advanced and clean manufacturing is a key driver of the upcoming industrial revolution. The aim of this workshop is to explore how technology transfer activities can be used as a mechanism to help EU industry, particularly manufacturing SMEs, to adopt new advanced and clean manufacturing technologies. Practical examples will be presented to illustrate the potential of technology transfer in this area.

The workshop will gather technology providers, industry executives, technology transfer officers, policy makers and financial intermediaries to share experiences and lessons learned. One of the key objectives is to discuss policy implications at all levels that could help accelerating the adoption of advanced technologies by the European manufacturing industry.
