We are delighted to announce the dates for the 18th Annual Cambridge International Manufacturing Symposium which will take place on Thursday 11th and Friday 12th September 2014, with the event being held at the Moller Centre in Cambridge, UK.

April 2014 saw the launch of CIM’s report: “Capturing value from global networks – strategic approaches to designing international production, supply and service operations”. This report describes the research and real-World application of innovative approaches for guiding strategy and policy, undertaken at the Centre for International Manufacturing. Details on the report launch schedule will be circulated this month.


The symposium focus this year will examine the key areas of this report and the implications for manufacturing, supply networks and corporate policy in the 21st century.


Special tracks will also be featured on areas such as risk, re-shoring, continuous processing, sustainable supply networks, e-commerce and last mile logistics, service supply networks, industry emergence and transformation, dynamic capabilities and emerging country multi-nationals.
