The Manufacturing Partnership Day 2024 – Presentations are available



Building on the resounding success of the first edition, EFFRA organised The Manufacturing Partnership Day in Brussels on May 7th and 8th. The event brought together the manufacturing research and innovation community once again for two days of insightful presentations, engaging discussions, and fruitful networking.

The event showcased 37 Made in Europe and Factories of the Future projects, which presented their results and goals over two days. Additionally, there was an exhibition area where the projects could interact with visitors and engage in detailed discussions about their work.

You can find more information and all the presentations in PDF format on the event website.
