Manufuture 2017 took place in autumn 2017, during the second half of Estonia’s Presidency of the Council of the European Union (EU) and at a time when the biggest EU Research and Innovation programme, Horizon 2020, was reaching its halfway point.
Manufuture 2017 thus served as a forum for stakeholders from industry, universities, research institutions and government to discuss opportunities for better implementation of the EU Framework Programme for research and innovation as well as respective national initiatives.
In the course of its EU presidency, Estonia will be paying attention to how to shape the positions of different stakeholders regarding general and sectoral industrial policies in the context of the European Union.
