Industrial workshop: Reconfigurable production in the era of Industry 4.0

Tuesday, November 23, 2021

Following the last year edition and its success, IMT TUM organise a new industrial workshop supported by German French academy for the industry of the future. Academic and industrial speakers engaged in industrial engineering have been invited to participate in the seminar and to explore this year’s topic around collaborative networks 4.0 and their implication in social and environmental global terms. During the day, we will:

  • Put forth collaborative challenges for industrial research
  • Provide evidence of various forms of collaborative research
  • Discuss issues related to industry of the future and reconfigurable production systems

It is our goal to provide a platform for interdisciplinary exchange and to create a basis for further industrial innovation programs and research collaborations.

We encourage you to join us on Tuesday, November 23 at 8.30 am CET to hear more about this hot topic and to engage in fruitful discussions.

This year edition of the industrial workshop is organized in parallel with the Pro VE 2021 conference on Smart and Sustainable Collaborative Networks 4.0. In recent years, PRO VE Conferences have introduced the notion of Collaborative networks 4.0 (CN 4.0 as the new generation of collaborative networks, in the era of applied Artificial Intelligence and Digital Transformation. Meanwhile since last year, the world has encountered major health and economic crises caused by the Corona
pandemic, emphasizing that disruptive situations, at different scales, tend to be increasingly frequent, while having strong impact in the society Smart and digital technologies supporting agility, scalability, resilience, and adaptability, characterize CN 4.0. These properties have become critical features for most sectors of our modern societies, including manufacturing industry and services sectors CN 4.0 can contribute to building a more resilient and sustainable world.
