Date: 25 January 2023
Time: 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
Location: Online

In this webinar InterAct Co-Director, Professor Jill MacBryde, will outline opportunities to engage with InterAct – whether you are an academic, policy maker, or a practitioner from manufacturing or a developer of digital technologies. She will particularly focus on how we can ensure that we are thinking abut people as we build a strong manufacturing future in a digital environment. The Webinar will touch on important questions such as:

  • What will a digital manufacturing workplace look like?
  • How can the manufacturing sector prepare people to work alongside new technologies, robots, and co-bots?
  • What are the essential skills for future manufacturing workplaces and how can we enable these through training and education?
  • How can advanced technologies help generate and embed new ways of working by opening up career opportunities for otherwise hard-to-reach groups such as women, minorities, older workers and disabled people?
