In recent years, every day citizens have had an increasing amount of opportunities to actively participate, contribute and decide in different areas and contexts. Although these opportunities are still emerging, the manufacturing industry is no exception to this paradigm.
The objective of the online event – The social manufacturing paradigm: co-creating with manufacturers, maker spaces and consumers – is to highlight the role of makers and consumers in the social manufacturing landscape, which promotes the participation among individuals and the industry in the production of consumer goods. This framework will be made based on the activities being carried out within the iPRODUCE project.
The presentations will focus on highlighting the main requirements and challenges faced by consumers and the industry and technologies that are available to facilitate a collaborative manufacturing environment. Invited speakers will showcase ongoing work and existing practices within the domain of social manufacturing. Finally, a virtual round table will provide the audience with an opportunity to engage and manufacture a fruitful and interactive discussion.
