Episode 17 | The Future of Production: Factories 2030

What will production look like in 2030? Will there be digital factories? Will we produce in a climate-neutral way and in regional cycles? What role do people play in production – and what are companies doing to counter the looming shortage of skilled workers?

In this episode, we take a look into the future. Host Susann Reichert talks to Dr. Tobias Heinen, Managing Director of GREAN GmbH, and Dr. Malte Stonis, Managing Director of the Institute for Integrated Production Hannover (IPH) gGmbH, about digitization and data, material efficiency and sustainability, production and personnel – and crises. Will anyone still remember the Corona pandemic in 2030? What crises will we face in the future? And do companies occasionally need radical upheavals to develop further?
