The Global Manufacturing and Industrialisation Summit (GMIS)
What is the Global Manufacturing and Industrialisation Summit (GMIS)?
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.
The third edition of the Global Manufacturing and Industrialisation Summit will take place alongside HANNOVER MESSE on 20 and 21 April 2020. #GMIS2020 in Germany, co-chaired by the UAE Ministry of Energy and Industry and the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) will work to adopt uniform global standards for the application of Fourth Industrial Revolution technology in manufacturing. Hosting the 2020 edition of the event in Germany will also contribute to promoting sustainable industrial development through innovation and the adoption of Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) technologies on a global scale.
What is GMIS Connect?
GMIS Connect is the Global Manufacturing and Industrialisation Summit’s international roadshow programme. Strategically held in some of the world’s leading cities, GMIS Connect is focused on reaching out to key markets and stakeholders such as manufacturers, governments and NGOs, technologists, and investors. It is the starting point for discussions on trends, opportunities, challenges and ideas to enable the genuine, meaningful transformation of the global manufacturing sector. By gathering international insights, data, knowledge and opinion on how the manufacturing sector of the future should be built, GMIS Connect shapes the discussion for #GMIS2020.
From 9-11 July 2019, the manufacturing community gathered 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 was 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 continued 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.
