Don’t lose sight of the human factor in the manufacturing industry

Press/Media: Expert Comment

Description

How can the European manufacturing industry remain competitive with that of China? European research program ‘Factories of the Future,’ which receives funding from Horizon 2020, tries to find an answer to that question. Paul Grefen and Irene Vanderfeesten, who worked on this comprehensive research project on behalf of TU/e, believe that small and medium-sized enterprises should stay as flexible as possible, and that it’s important not to lose sight of the human factor. Grefen recently published a book on their contribution to the program.
