Global Manufacturing and Industrialisation Summit (GMIS)

GMIS LOGO

The Global Manufacturing and Industrialisation Summit (GMIS) was established in 2015 to build bridges between manufacturers, governments and NGOs, technologists, and investors in harnessing the Fourth Industrial Revolution’s transformation of manufacturing for the greater good. A joint initiative by the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) and the Government of the United Arab Emirates, GMIS is a platform that presents the manufacturing sector with an opportunity to contribute towards global good, working to the benefit of all.

GMIS Connect – The Roadshows

GMIS Connect

GMIS Connect is the Global Manufacturing and Industrialization Summit’s international roadshow programme. Strategically held in some of the world’s leading manufacturing hubs, GMIS Connect is the starting point in engaging the local manufacturing community with our global partners to discuss trends, opportunities and challenges brought by the fourth industrial revolution. By bringing together governments, local and international manufacturers, start-ups and SMEs, NGOs and academia, the roadshows are a key component in gathering insights and shaping the discussions for the next Global Manufacturing and Industrialization Summit.

GMIS 2019

In July 2019, the manufacturing community will get together in the city of Yekaterinburg for the second edition of the Global Manufacturing and Industrialisation Summit.

First announced by President Vladimir Putin in May 2018, GMIS2019 will be 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 will continue 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: the Russian Federation

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.

Nature-inspired Technologies

GMIS2019 will highlight the role of ‘nature-inspired technologies’ in discovering pioneering solutions that solve today’s real-world issues. Also known as biomimetic design or ‘biomimicry’, the theme of nature-inspired technologies is the science of mapping design challenges to nature and has paved the way for some of the most important and impactful inventions our world has seen.
