At the same time, Japan is strengthening its position in key manufacturing technologies – particularly in emerging industries – creating further tension between the Japanese movement of production to China and their desire to lead in these new areas.

The inclusion of manufacturing topics and issues into the funding mechanism of the planned European Science Council is of crucial importance. Other existing mechanisms on transfer and mobility of researchers have to be maintained as well as international co-operation. Excellent research projects in manufacturing are needed. It is important to notice not to concentrate on technological developments only but the whole system of innovation in the firms has to be considered. This implies tools, strategies, methods, procedures etc.

However, the people-less factory still receives a sceptical assessment by the experts. Humans working with flexible automation solutions in the near future will still play an important role in creating the flexibility. Experts expect therefore, people working with flexible automation technologies instead of a people-less factory. • Only long-term automation visions comprise new ways of interactions between machines and humans such as human-machine interfaces, human-machine speech recognition, self-learning systems, and co-bots.
