Visit the YML website https://youngmanufacturingleaders.org/ and take a look at the contest guidelines to find out about the rules and the topic to tackle according to your country of residence.
“We are not looking for scientific document. Essays can be more creative, more personal, but still address the questions identified with a scientific background of course. We will judge the essays based on both creativity and understanding of the topics, but we are also looking for young, out-of-box-ideas”, says Marco Taisch, YML activity leader and scientific chairman of the World Manufacturing Foundation.
What’s in it for the participants:
The best essays will be published in the 2020 World Manufacturing Report. The five winners – one for each category – will be also invited to the Young Manufacturing Leaders Main Event and the World Manufacturing Forum on 11-12 Nov 2020.
What Young Manufacturing Leaders?
The objective of this EIT Manufacturing project is to create an international network of young people with a passion for innovative, digital and sustainable manufacturing. The network is open to students, young employees in the manufacturing industry. Another objective is to contribute to bridge the skill gap by connecting these young people with the industry and research.
In addition to common events organized by the project, each partner organization has put in place so called local City Hubs led by young people i.e., Braunschweig, Bilbao, Gothenburg, Milan and Prague. As of September, the local Hubs will be organizing webinars, company visits and events – a bottom-up approach.
The project is a consortium of five partners: Politecnico di Milano as the lead partner, Technische Universität Braunschweig, FIT CTU in Prague, Chalmers University of Technology, Tecnalia, World Manufacturing Foundation.
