Institute for Manufacturing, 17 Charles Babbage Road, CB3 0FS

We all live in a manufactured world. Everything around us other than people, plants, rocks and animals has been made by someone and delivered to where it is needed. And yet the processes by which these manufactured things appear in our lives are largely invisible.

In this talk, Tim Minshall (Dr John C Taylor Professor of Innovation and Head of the Institute for Manufacturing) will make that largely invisible world visible. He will also discuss why – if we want to have a more sustainable and equitable world – we need to rethink what we make, and how and where we make it.
