Strategic investments in European manufacturing to rise to global challenges 

The EU has defined a strategic objective to boost reindustrialisation and to increase the contribution to GDP of manufacturing industry from about 16% to 20%. In order to succeed, it is essential to optimise the use of key instruments such as the European Structural and Investment Funds and Horizon2020. Access to finance for new manufacturing ventures as well as established companies with high growth potential on a global level must also be improved.

MANUFUTURE 2015 will:
- Assess manufacturing research and development progress in Europe compared with global competitors.
- Define the conditions needed for successfully reindustrialising Europe.
- Identify and endorse new policy instruments, business models, support mechanisms and technologies.
- Develop recommendations for policy makers.
