ManuFUTURE has just released its new Vision 2030 with the contribution of EWF. The report envisions Future Manufacturing as a key driver for growth and sustainability, by exploiting current trends, challenges and opportunities, influencing the development of all manufacturing sectors.

EWF is part of the high-level group of ManuFUTURE, a European Technology Platform who mission is to propose, develop and implement a strategy based on Research and Innovation, capable of speeding up the rate of industrial transformation to high-added-value products, processes and services, securing high-skills employment and winning a major share of world Manufacturing output in the knowledge-driven economy.

We are very pleased with the fact that the report reflects much of what EWF has been practiced. In the chapter related with key goals and priorities for future manufacturing, the report mentions the creation of European Manufacturing Qualification and Training programmes that answer the evolving Manufacturing requirements and that can be easily adapted and transferred at a national and regional level. 

Vision 2030 also refers that there is a need to identify necessary skills at the European, national and regional level and align industry qualifications and needs with the European Qualifications Framework, hence ensuring a more qualified and mobile workforce within the EU.

At EWF we have been working hard to assure that our international harmonised system met the requirements of the future industry. It is within this purpose that we are developing our modular training system and preparing new qualifications in additive manufacturing.
