In modern rapidly growing global economy industrial manufacturers play the critical role.
They bring wealth to investors, pay taxes to governments and hire almost half a billion people from all over the world. They also face the challenges of rapid technological transformation and global supply chains caused by digital revolution and automatization as well as geopolitical factors. These challenges are not to be overcome separately anymore. They need a global solution which also makes manufactory better to agree with United Nation Sustainable Development Goals for business as well as for corresponding environment.
Global Manufacturing and Industrialization Summit (GMIS) was founded as industry association tasked with building relationships between manufacturers, governments, non-profit organizations and investors in order to use industrial transformation of the 4th Industrial Revolution and resuscitation of the global economy. As the common initiative of UAE and United Nation Industrial Development Organization GMIS tends to be a platform which gives the opportunity for industrial manufacturers to contribute to global wealth for the greater humankind good.
GMIS is the first in the world cross-industrial and cross-functional platform that provides leaders with opportunity for technological transformation, increase of investments and development of innovations and advanced technologies. Bringing powerful delegates, global and experienced leaders, scientists, and engineers from different industries together Summit is aimed at moving the industry to the central point of economy resuscitation and global policy making and using it as an instrument for global cooperation and interaction.
The first GMIS was hold under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the Crown Prince of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces on March 2017 in the University of Paris. GMIS-2017 leaved the strong impression due to global partnership and innovation bringing together more than 3000 leaders from government, heavy and civil industry in order to promote manufacturing and industrial development worldwide and technological trends spotting.
This time the industrial community is to be gathered in Ekaterinburg, the industrial center of Russia, to take part in the second GMIS on July 2019. The slogan of this Summit is Nature-inspired Technologies as known as biometric design and bionics, the science of nature design implementing for modern innovation solutions. One of the brightest example of bionics is transferring the mechanism of humpback whales’ flippers movements to wind electro turbines design. That inspired the engineers to design wind turbine with serrated edge. This solution increased its efficiency and reduce noise against ones with smooth shoulders.
GMIS-2019 will keep strengthening influence of innovations and technologies from the 4th industrial revolution on global manufacturing by mean of knowledge, advanced practice and standards outreach in all of the world as well as expressing the role of manufacturing in global health and achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
The Summit business program will bring together the key experts with global expertise for designing the breakthrough strategy for industrial development. The discussions will be held in the form of interactive debates, sessions and workshops which should inspire the next generation of industrial leaders, innovators and pioneers.
The representative from over 130 countries including 10 presidents and many leading managers from industries and technologies are expected in the Summit. Among the number of speakers are H.E. Suhail Mohamed Faraj Al Mazrouei the Minister of Energy (UAE), Lee Yong General Director of UNIDO, Sergio Emido Bini Assessor of Friuli-Venezia Giulia for Productive Activities and Tourism (Italy), Dr. Fadel Digham Executive Director of the Research and Development Department at the National Telecom Regulatory Authority (Egypt), Dong Xian R&D Director of Nat Beijing Naton Technology Group Ltd.
