The Design & Manufacturing industry

is currently undergoing the most dramatic disruption imaginable. Across the world, companies are seeking ways to come back from this pandemic better and stronger than ever before. Digital technologies clearly have some part to play in this recovery but without a joined-up strategy, supported by robust policies it will be difficult to recover, especially for the SME / SMB sector.

Autodesk is bringing together key organizations from across Europe and India to explore the DNA of a global digital recovery plan. Our goal is to collaboratively explore

  • The global picture in terms of the design and manufacturing industry
  • The DNA of a global recovery plan
  • Opportunities to develop or support specific recovery initiatives.

What is on the agenda?

  • Where are we today?
  • Where do we need to be?
  • How are we getting there?

Autodesk’s goal is to initiate a debate on the things that have the potential to enable recovery, growth and resilience in the industry, and examine how digital technologies might accelerate that recovery and growth.

Ralf H. KOMOR will be a panel guest and share his thoughts and experience with the audience.
