The millennial apprentice workshop

Dr Paula P Sobrino

3.5 million manufacturing jobs will need to be filled in the next decade, but the skills gap is expected to end up in 2 million of jobs unfilled.

Modern manufacturing is now looking for young workers to hire in a cutting-edge technological environment. Are millennials ready for the change?

Join Mariachiara Barzotto and Paula P Sobrino in this workshop, take part in the quiz to explore the new face of manufacturing, and to find out more about how manufacturers truly design and build the future in smart factories. Two teams plus an audience will put to test their social perceptions on manufacturing labour in the age of millennials and technology.
