IfM Briefing Day

A day of interactive sessions for senior industrialists and policymakers presenting the latest research, approaches and practical applications from the Institute for Manufacturing.

Overview

This intensive briefing day is designed to introduce the latest research, practice and education programmes of the Institute for Manufacturing (IfM). It also provides a forum for the fruitful exchange of ideas and an opportunity to explore possible collaborations.
