advantageaustria-logoExperts from the world-renowned Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) will be in Vienna as guests of the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber May 22–23, 2013. As part of the MIT Europe Conference 2013, international academics, business leaders, and technology experts will address the question of "Remaking Manufacturing."

Europe and the US have higher labor costs than many other economies do. If they are to compete in manufacturing in the global market, they need to be more innovative and efficient – by creating new paradigms in manufacturing, something especially important to SMEs. Leading MIT researchers will present their insights into the most critical problems and the potential of new movements such as Big Data, Collaborative Innovation Networks, Additive Manufacturing, Robotic Assistants, and Virtual Factories.
