YEKATERINBURG, RUSSIA

July 2019

WELCOME TO #GMIS2019

In July 2019, the manufacturing community gathered in the city of Yekaterinburg – the industrial heartland of Russia – for the second edition of the Global Manufacturing and Industrialisation Summit, #GMIS2019.
First announced by President Vladimir Putin in May 2018, #GMIS2019 was held under the theme of ‘nature-inspired technologies’ – also known as biomimetic design and biomimicry – which is the science of mapping design challenges to the natural world to find innovative solutions. The 2019 summit hosted presentations, panel session, keynotes and working groups to create discussion in order to intensify the impact of innovation and Fourth Industrial Revolution technologies on the global manufacturing sector through the worldwide dissemination of knowledge, best practices and standards, while highlighting the role of manufacturing in enabling global prosperity through advancing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations.

Our Host Russia

Russia’s machine-building industry provides for most of the country’s needs, including steam boilers and turbines, electric generators, grain combines, automobiles, and electric locomotives, and fills much of its demand for shipbuilding, electric-power-generating and transmitting equipment, consumer durables, machine tools, instruments, and automation components. Russian factories also produce armaments – including tanks, jet fighters, androckets – which are sold to many countries and contribute significantly to Russia’s export income.
