The Observatory in brief
The Plants of the Future Observatory is a think tank, created by Fives in 2012 on its bicentennial year.
Confronted by the new economic, social and environmental challenges faced by industry and industrial plants in the 21st century, this Observatory is committed to initiating an open discussion about the industry of tomorrow and the plants of the future and to disseminate these views to public
The Fives Observatory for the Plants of the Future is structured as a "Think Tank" that brings citizens and experts together, thus combining perspectives from diverse multidisciplinary and international fields; acknowledged experts and members of the general public are invited to contribute to this wide-ranging process of consultation that is not only responsible but also socially desirable. In this context, events are organized on a regular basis (qualitative interviews, quantitative survey; citizens' conference, debates, etc.)
The website www.lesusinesdufutur.com brings together the findings of these different initiatives.
