Is Manufacturing the forgotten focus of the RSA?

Online via Zoom: book now to receive joining instructions

Are you interested in reigniting an RSA focus on manufacturing? This online RSA event is an opportunity for you to share your ideas with other Fellows and the Fellowship Council.

Brendan Dunphy FRSA created a topic on the RSA Fellows Forum HERE with the following statement (edited):

"Is manufacturing the forgotten focus of the RSA? All UK political parties have called for a re-birth of UK manufacturing in recent years. Additive Manufacturing, new materials, AI, and other digital technologies are opening possibilities to reinvent and relaunch manufacturing but we Fellows seem strangely silent on the issue, here on the Fellows' Forum and across the RSA. Maybe the RSA and Fellows just don't have an interest?" 

The topic generated a lively discussion.  Brendan Dunphy and Rod Hyde, Chair of Fellowship Council, agreed to co-host a Zoom session to explore the topic further and explore what we can do to create a renewed focus on manufacturing across the Fellowship.

The conversation will be recorded and summarized and shared via the Forum shortly after the event, including proposed next steps. During the event, please don't say anything you wouldn't want others to hear, including in small-group conversations. By registering for the event and joining on the day, you are agreeing to be recorded.
