The Forum will bring together high-level industrialists, policy makers, and key societal stakeholders across the globe for a cross-exchange of ideas.  The program intends to focus on cooperation to create a global environment for sustainable economic success through sharing resources, creating and supporting common platforms for standards and interoperability for emerging technologies, solving storage and knowledge-mining challenges for ever-increasing amounts of data, and finding innovative ways to leverage applied R&D investments.

Because technology and skills are key innovation differentiators, the Forum will also discuss the role of educational institutions, companies, and stakeholders in training the next-generation of workers in the highly technical field of manufacturing.

Sponsored by the European Commission and IMS International and its member countries, it is open to international sponsorship from government, industry, and institutions.
