This was Rethink! Smart Manufacturing Europe 2021: the Smart Process & Manufacturing Systems Summit

The fourth edition of the Rethink! Smart Manufacturing Europe summit was unanimously characterized as a successful conference. Top level executives from all around the world gathered in Berlin to shape the future of manufacturing during 2,5 event days filled with keynotes, case studies, networking sessions, interactive discussion rounds as well as the networking dinner.

One thing became clear: there is still a need for discussion and planning, but most importantly the need for collaboration across job functions and with different stakeholders to maximize the effectiveness of manufacturing technologies and tools.
