Event description

Description

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 rebirth 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 (If you can’t make the session but wish to contribute, please add your ideas to the Fellows’ Forum: registration is required and you’ll need your Fellowship number to hand). 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.

You can join the event live via the Zoom conferencing system. Details to join the call will be sent once you book your place. All you need is an internet-connected device with a webcam and a headset, plus a decent internet connection and a quiet place to call from. There’s also a telephone back-up option.

The event is free but please book your place above. Registered attendees will receive details of how to join the online event in advance, along with a brief how-to guide.

If you have any questions, please contact Event Lead Brendan Dunphy FRSA: bed@brendan-dunphy.co.uk. If you have any access requirements or require any reasonable adjustments, please let the team know at networks@rsa.org.uk.
