Green is the new black - From Smokestacks to Sustainability

The Manufacturing Day is the leading event during ViennaUP'23 to bring together start-ups, key industrial players, investors, and experts in global manufacturing. It celebrates the achievements and potential of the European manufacturing industry. This year's theme, "Green is the new black - From Smokestacks to Sustainability," focuses on the industry's transition towards environmentally-friendly and sustainable manufacturing practices.

The Manufacturing Day aims to showcase the latest innovations and technologies that are driving this transition and to inspire the next generation of manufacturing professionals to take an active role in shaping the future of the industry. The event offers a varied and rich programme for and with start-ups in the manufacturing industry. 

We are proud to announce our keynote speakers!

Futurist Gerd Leonhard will open the Manufacturing Day with a keynote speech on the topic of “The next 10 years - and what it all means for Manufacturing and Sustainability”.

Mariana Mazzucato will give a keynote speech on "The role of innovation in the green transformation of the manufacturing industry". Afterwards, she will participate in the panel discussion with the title "Greenovation - Manufacturing the Day after Tomorrow" together with other leading industry experts. The panel will elaborate on the impact of innovation on the transition to sustainable manufacturing practices and the challenges and opportunities that come with it. All panelists will be open for questions!

Registered participants have the chance to ask a question to Mariana Mazzucato upfront! Out of all submissions, the best 3 questions will be asked to Mariana during the event.

Moreover, the Manufacturing Day features pitching sessions of high-tech manufacturing start-ups from all over Europe in the BoostUp! East 2023 competition. 

The event provides a platform for networking and collaboration between industrial corporates, investors, policymakers, academics, and many others! 

And after all of that we will celebrate with cocktails and BBQ
