The EU is world’s biggest exporter of manufactured goods and is renowned as a market leader for the production of high-quality products. Manufacturing is the backbone of the European economy providing employment, empowering efficiency, sustainability, and resilience, and innovating new ideas that impact all of us.

Thus, it is essential that Europe retains and supports its manufacturing industry in all areas, whilst at the same time empowering industry to maximise advantage from new concepts, the latest innovations, and cutting-edge research. Industry 4.0, 5.0, and “Made in Europe” are key concepts framing the European manufacturing landscape, but what do they mean in practice and how are these concepts shaping the present and the future of manufacturing?

The aim of DMIS is to provide a networking conference to answer these questions by linking industry, technology, and research together, by exploring the latest interpretations of concepts, and by understanding how others have already benefited.

Welcome to DMIS2023



Covering a wide range of digital manufacturing topics including:

- Zero defects and data quality

- Digital platforms and marketplaces

- Robotics and AI

- Sustainability and resilience.

Discussing Challenges for further unlocking the Digital age and moving from Industry 4.0 to 5.0 whilst working for a greener and more efficient industry. What are the expectations of digital quality approaches? What part will manufacturing data spaces play? Ethical AI – what is the impact on industry? What is the progress of digital platforms in the European landscape? How will blockchain technologies impact manufacturing? What will the Twin green and digital transition mean in practice?



Joining industry, users, technology partners, academics, researchers, and policy makers in a unique and cross-cutting discussion and networking forum, with exhibits from research and industry, and supported by research and innovation cooperation mechanisms. DMIS will fire your imagination for Digital Manufacturing.
