The 1st Annual EPSRC Manufacturing the Future Conference will be held on 19 and 20 September 2012 at Loughborough University. The conference is hosted by the EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Regenerative Medicine.

The aim of the conference is to build and network the manufacturing research community, exchange best practice and work in progress and communicate the value of the community to stakeholders. The conference will become the national forum for defining and debating the objectives and approaches for Scientific Excellence in manufacturing research.

The conference is for, and led by, the community and is sponsored by EPSRC’s Manufacturing the Future Theme as part of their objective to develop the UK’s reputation for excellence in manufacturing research. The conference will be open to all from academia and industry. It is expected that the EPSRC Centres for Innovative Manufacturing will be well represented as will other current and earlier EPSRC and Technology Strategy Board sponsored activities in manufacturing including the Innovative Manufacturing Research Centres, Centres for Doctoral Training and Engineering Doctorate Centres, the Technology Strategy Board High Value Manufacturing programme and the High Value Manufacturing Catapult.
