The Global Manufacturing and Industrialisation Summit (GMIS) was established in 2015 to build bridges between manufacturers, governments and NGOs, technologists, and investors and to harness the Fourth Industrial Revolution’s transformation of manufacturing to enable the regeneration of the global economy. A joint initiative of the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), GMIS is a platform that presents the manufacturing sector with an opportunity to contribute towards global good.

#GMIS2019

From 9-11 July 2019, the manufacturing community will gather in the city of Yekaterinburg for the second edition of the Global Manufacturing and Industrialisation Summit (GMIS).

First announced by President Vladimir Putin in May 2018, #GMIS2019 will be held under the theme of ‘nature-inspired technologies’ – also known as biomimetic design and biomimicry – highlighting the ways in which manufacturing is inspired by our surrounding environment to innovate. The 2019 summit will continue to intensify the impact of innovation and Fourth Industrial Revolution technologies on the global manufacturing sector through the worldwide dissemination of knowledge, best practices and standards, while highlighting the role of manufacturing in enabling global prosperity through advancing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations.

Our Host: the Russian Federation

Dynamism is a hallmark of the Russian city of Yekaterinburg, also known as Ekaterinburg, a leading industrial hub and economic powerhouse. Located east of the Ural Mountains, at the crossroads of Europe and Asia, it is regarded as Russia’s premier city for business and investment.

At a national level, Russia’s machine-building industry provides for most of the country’s needs, including steam boilers and turbines, electric generators, grain combines, automobiles, and electric locomotives, and fills much of its demand for shipbuilding, electric-power-generating and transmitting equipment, consumer durables, machine tools, instruments, and automation components.

The country has generally enjoyed a healthy trade surplus in recent decades and primary exports include oil, metals, machinery, chemicals, and forestry products, while principal imports include machinery and foods.

Nature-inspired Technologies

#GMIS2019 will highlight the role of ‘nature-inspired technologies’ in discovering pioneering solutions that solve today’s real-world issues. Also known as biomimetic design or ‘biomimicry’, the theme of nature-inspired technologies is the science of mapping design challenges to nature and has paved the way for some of the most important and impactful inventions our world has seen. The Summit will highlight the ways in which manufacturing is inspired by our surrounding environment to innovate.
