• Project:

    The Future of Manufacturing in Europe

  • Duration: 2014 - 2014
  • Aim:

    This project explores scenarios for future developments in European manufacturing employment in the context of globalisation and rapid technological change. The key objective is to consider whether a revival of manufacturing could or should be based on foreign led growth or on a co-ordinated expansion of internal demand, which might have very different implications for the distribution of overall employment (i.e. both within and outside manufacturing) across Member States. A further objective is to gain a deeper understanding of how far recent technological and other developments are changing methods of production and the organisation and location of manufacturing activities.
