RSA Birmingham Fourth Industrial Revolution: Design and Manufacture

Fellowship Event


Impact Hub, Birmingham

  • Manufacturing
  • Fellowship

Join us for RSA Birmingham: Fourth Industrial Revolution - Design and Manufacture.

In 2018 we will be exploring and learning from ways in which entrepreneurs, innovators, makers, and citizens in and around Birmingham are responding to advances in technology which together herald the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR).   

From the Internet of Things to biotechnology, Big Data analytics to 3D printing, artificial intelligence to energy storage, 4IR will challenge long-held assumptions about the ways in which we live, work, and learn, and even the meaning of value and reward. How can we make sure 4IR responds to our most important human needs and contributes to outcomes that really matter? 

Our quest to find some answers continues on Wednesday 21 March, 6pm-8pm at Impact Hub Birmingham, with an event focused on design and manufacture. 

The journey continues (same time and place): 

  • Wed 23 May and Wednesday 18 July  

Do you have a project, idea, or innovation to share at any of these four events (or an idea for other themes we may explore in the future)Could you be a guide for this adventure? You might wish to show a video, host a conversation, make a micro-presentation, pop-up an exhibition - anything that you feel will help navigate a way through this fast-changing landscape.  

If so, we’d love to hear from you: please contact Area Manager Abigail Campbell.  

The event is free to attend, and all are welcome: please book your place (see above).  

If you have any access requirements or require any reasonable adjustments, please let the team know: Please also let us know if you have any dietary requirements or severe allergies.

Location: Impact Hub, Walker Building, 58 Oxford Street, Birmingham, B5 5NR
