Russia unveils new portal for manufacturing summit

DUBAI, July 17, 2018

A new online portal has been officially launched by Denis Manturov, Minister of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation, for the second edition of the Global Manufacturing and Industrialisation Summit (GMIS), to be held next year in Russia, said a report.

GMIS is the pioneering cross-industry forum that aims to unify the world in shaping the future of manufacturing.

The unveiling of the #GMIS2019 portal took place at INNOPROM 2018, Russia's Industrial Trade Fair, launching a one-year countdown to #GMIS2019, reported state news agency Wam.

Announced by the President of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Putin, during the plenary session at the recent St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF), the summit will coincide with the 10th staging of INNOPROM and will be held in the Russian city of Yekaterinburg in July 2019.

The summit which will continue to build on the success and momentum generated by its inaugural event held in Abu Dhabi, UAE, last year, will promote the development of a roadmap for the future of manufacturing across the world, with economic and social development at its core.

A global audience of government and business leaders, as well as representatives of nongovernmental organisations, academics and biologists, will engage in debates, plenary sessions and workshops on ‘nature-inspired technologies’, also known as biomimetic design and biomimicry, to highlight innovative strategies and designs that advance sustainable industrial development, and collaborate on global initiatives that are designed to empower and inspire the next generation of manufacturing entrepreneurs, innovators and pioneers, added the report.
