ManuFUTURE Vision 2030 envisions Future Manufacturing as a key driver for growth and sustainability, by exploiting current trends, challenges and opportunities, influencing the development of all manufacturing sectors. This document is a contribution for political, economic, ecological and social orientation from a European perspective.

The manufacturing sector is of vital importance for Europe to foster economic growth and job creation and has a pivotal role to play in prompting investment and innovation, in particular as a vehicle for the introduction of radical innovations. The ongoing digitalisation of industry and the integration of new technologies are examples of the manufacturing enabling role and the European leading capabilities.
