JIC 120″: Factories of the Future

Free

Event Details

“Industry 4.0” has become the main keyword for the future of Europe´s innovation strength in the industrial sector. It is a superordinate concept which includes among other things the future of manufacturing processes and production sites. New business models are emerging and new manufacturing processes need to be implemented along the value added chain on the basis of combinations of already existing technologies and new developments. Especially, the ongoing digitalization of physical systems combined with the possibilities of connected systems will have a great impact on future manufacturing processes, leading to “smart factories”. Consequently, the organizational systems and planning tools must be adapted to the new technologies, which pose a great challenge especially for small and medium-sized enterprises.

For this purpose, we invite you to discuss the future of factories and the associated impact and consequences on the local and global markets together with experts from universities, research centers and companies from the regions of Vienna, South Moravia and Bratislava. Interesting talks will provide you with insights into the upcoming changes and also inform you about funding opportunities. Furthermore, the event will include network sessions and put a special emphasis on matchmaking and connecting stakeholders from Austria, the Czech Republic and Slovakia. In addition, there will also be the possibility to visit Vienna´s first pilot factory. The concept of the pilot factory contains a manufacturing line including additive manufacturing, automatic processing, quality assurance systems, fully automated logistic system based on RFID technology and robotics
