RECODE Symposium – Future Visions of Manufacturing event launched

The RECODE International Symposium, organised by the EPSRC-ESRC funded RECODE network, has been launched and will take place on the 5th and 6th June 2017 at the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), London.

The aim of the network is to develop an active and engaged community to identify, test and evaluate a multi-disciplinary vision and research agenda associated with the application of big data in the transition towards a re-distributed manufacturing model for consumer goods.

The RECODE network is currently being researched and developed through a series of feasibility studies led a multidisciplinary team comprised of internationally renowned experts from Cranfield, Brunel, Cambridge, Manchester and Teesside universities and practicing industry leaders in the fields of sustainability, manufacture, big data, circular economy and consumer goods.

More information on the RECODE network can be found at www.recode-network.com

The RECODE Symposium will bring together industrial organisations and research institutions from around the world to share and create future visions for manufacturing focusing on the topics of customisation, re-distribution and technology.

It is a two-day event organised by industrial practitioners and academic thought leaders offering: six sessions, internationally recognised keynote speakers, networking sessions and a symposium gala dinner.
