Description

Digital Fabrication and digitally operated processes including composite materials, laser and 3D printing are transforming the competitiveness and working practices of businesses.

This workshop aims to:

  • Explore the relationships between digital fabrication and the ongoing changes of manufacturing
  • Develop a dialogue between engineering and business management and suggest a new way of understanding the changing nature of manufacturing
  • Explore the implication of digital fabrication for policy making, economic growth and regional development.

This workshop is the first of two IAS workshops focusing on regeneration economy and engineering. It will consist of a series of presentations followed by open discussions to identify key research issues and develop a research agenda.
