UCD and the AMS Research Group Host IMC30 Conference 2013


On the 3rd and 4th of September 2013 UCD and the AMS research group played host to the 30th International Manufacturing conference, theme "Professional Development of Engineers for Advanced Manufacturing".  The theme was carefully considered in light of the recent reports commissioned on manufacturing, such as the “Research Prioritisation Report”, and the stated need in developed economies for differentiation through knowledge-based product-service and business process innovation. In manufacturing industry specifically, competitive advantage must be engineered into mass-customised products and flexible manufacturing systems and processes by teams who are highly dependent on the excellence of the Manufacturing Engineering discipline.


The conference was a great success with over a 100 registered participants at the conference and presentations from both industry and academia. On the second day of the conference an industry session was held with a chaired debate on manufacturing in Ireland. The Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Minister Richard Bruton was in attendance. For more details on the conference, please visit the conference website here
