The coronavirus crisis has changed the landscape for manufacturing. The sector’s importance in the eyes of governments and the public has grown – as have the economic and operational challenges facing firms. As we look to an uncertain future of continued disruption and potential recession, the effects will be profound.
At this IfM Briefing, leading experts from the Institute for Manufacturing will draw lessons from the response of firms and governments, and look at how the industry is likely to change and adapt in the months and years ahead.
In the first part, they will present a summary of some of their recent research and what the IfM has been doing to help businesses, governments and health systems respond.
In the second part, they will engage in a wide-ranging discussion on the future of manufacturing in the wake of COVID-19, including questions from attendees.
