Welcome to our summer edition of the IMS newsletter. We are coming back with a lot of manufacturing news, but pay attention especially to our European Policy Section where you will find the latest information on the recent open Call for Proposals related to manufacturing and Factories of the Future. Over 230 million Euro are available for the most innovative projects.
Our big event World Manufacturing Forum 2012 is already knocking on the door. Please check the latest news and updates, as well as info on other interesting manufacturing events around the globe.
As we cannot afford to forget about the economic crisis, so read what is proposed by the European Commission – building a new industrial revolution in Europe. And if you want to know what the best countries for innovation are, you will also find this information in our newsletter.
Last, but not least, I would like to thank Dr. Rainer Zimmermann, the Head of the new Unit on Advanced Computing and Complex Systems at the European Commission as well as Dr. Dimitris Kiritsis from the ActionPlanT project, for contributing to the newsletter.
We always look forward to receive news also from you. You can follow us on Twitter and share your tweets with us.
