Pillar 1: Technologies for sustainable growth

Session 1.5 – Efficient manufacturing and automation

31 October 2018, 14:30-16:30, PLENARY room


Increasing industry awareness on circular economic approaches has led to the development and use of environmentally friendly manufacturing technologies, matching the objectives of smart energy, zero-waste and minimal consumption of environmental resources. In this direction, automation, one of the key characteristics of modern manufacturing, is a strong contributor to making manufacturing efficient and sustainable. The session will focus on new and creative industrial technologies, notably for human-robot collaboration, additive manufacturing, artificial intelligence and data analytics.
