The manufacturing industry is a strong asset of the European economy, accounting for 2 million enterprises and 33 million jobs.
On the 12 May at 10am CEST, the Advanced Technologies for Industry (ATI) project is organising a webinar on the topic of Industrial Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence, Robotics and Cloud Computing.
Europe's competitiveness is highly dependent on the ability of this sector to deliver high-quality innovative products using the latest advances in ICT. Certain technologies have a great impact on manufacturing.
The adoption of these new technological possibilities will have consequences for the production process, by lowering the cost of production, improving the speed of operations and minimizing errors.
The factories of the future need to deal with competitive pressures and incorporate new technologies, applications and services. In this context policymakers and other influential actors play a fundamental role in the establishment of frameworks that provide some degree of certainty to companies in designing their investment strategy.
The event will be structured in two main sessions:
- ATI will set the scene giving an overview of the main trends and adoptions of advanced technologies in the manufacturing sector and informing about the current policies that are being implemented in the field at the EU level
- The second session will aim at gathering different viewpoints and experiences about how to plan and implement the digital transformation of manufacturing SMEs.
