Rebuilding Australian Manufacturing post-Covid-19 with collaborative robotics.
Manufacturing is required for almost everything we use. COVID-19 has highlighted Australia’s dependence on global supply chains as well as gaps in our manufacturing capability. There is a resurgence in Australian-made sentiment from the public along with increasing investment from the federal and state governments in support of advanced manufacturing. This is all leading to a perfect opportunity for Australian manufacturers to embrace technology to help them meet new demands.
Join us for an Australian Made week inspired panel discussion led by Emeritus Professor Roy Green about what the future of Australian manufacturing looks like for workers, businesses and consumers if this digital transformation continues to be embraced.
Our panel of experts will discuss how innovative technology could put Australian manufacturing back on the world leading map as well as:
- deliver stability and growth for the economy
- boost productivity, profits and employee satisfaction for businesses
- provide new skills, create less hazardous and more inclusive jobs and workplaces for workers
- provide consumers with greater variety, better quality and faster provision of goods.
