We’re looking for people at the frontier of cleaner industrial manufacturing who can ignite a discussion about the path to net zero on a game-changing scale.


The European Green Deal commits the EU to carbon neutrality by 2050 and policymakers want industry to ‘pave the way’ with a transition towards net zero emissions for a cleaner, healthier future.

We’re looking for people at the frontier of cleaner industrial manufacturing to help find some answers. If you have ideas on, solutions for, or experience of how manufacturers in hard-to-abate sectors can embrace sustainable technologies to future-proof their competitiveness and viability, we want to hear from you.

The SIM Steering Committee will be assessing all entries and applicants can expect to hear from us regarding the status of their application in October 2021.

We welcome submissions from consultants or vendors, but such proposals will only be considered if paired with a co-presenter from a manufacturing company.
