11th Global Conference on Sustainable Manufacturing

Innovative Solutions


Sustainable manufacturing has emerged as the leading paradigm to address the dilemma of maintaining a progressive economic growth based on production of goods and services without continuing to damage our environment or future economic and social structures. While manufacturing is a major driver of civilized development that provides high quality living standards, its impact can be harmful if not managed and minimized, e.g. it may cause damage such as depletion of natural resources, global warming and toxic wastes.

On 23rd-25th September 2013, the Global Conference on Sustainable Manufacturing (GCSM) is expected to attract representatives from science and industry from all over the world to the conference chair's scientific home town Berlin, Germany.
Sponsored by the International Academy for Production Engineering (CIRP), it will be the 11th conference in the GCSM tradition, which has already been held in Istanbul, St. Petersburg, Abu Dhabi and Madras among other places.In 2013 it will be hosted by Technische Universität Berlin.
The conference serves as a forum for international research institutes and industrial companies related to the area of sustainable manufacturing. It offers keynote speeches, panel discussions, parallel sessions and a poster forum.
