Driving the Digital Transformation of manufacturing

Event Description

Digital Transformation is key for manufacturing SMEs (Small-Medium Enterprises) to remain competitive in a rapid changing production landscape. In particular, the Industry 4.0 paradigm, leveraging on millions of smart devices generating massive volumes of data, promises to improve production quality, efficiency and flexibility while lowering production costs.

This event will take a deep dive into the manufacturing landscape focussing on the three main pillars that are enabling the Industry 4.0 Digital Transformation, namely Industrial IoT, Industrial Analytics and Artificial Intelligence. Moreover, the cybersecurity threats associated with Industrial IoT and Industry 4.0 will be addressed. The workshop will provide valuable insights on the technology developments and the business opportunities in Industry 4.0 and will give you the opportunity to engage and be part of the EIT Digital Industry community at large.

The event will also include a presentation regarding the ongoing Call for Proposals for Data driven applications and experiments in CPS/IoT, launched by the MIDIH project. The Call targets the development of data-driven applications, preferably by IT SMEs as technology providers, and experiments in CPS/IoT preferably by manufacturing SMEs.
