The fourth industrial revolution is already on its way. This revolution is driven by giant leaps in software innovation and promises to radically alter the face of industry in the coming decades. Automated production systems using advanced robotics increasingly communicate with each other on detailed aspects of production, connecting previously fragmented manufacturing processes. This offers great opportunities to capitalise on software and advanced technology across entire development and production processes. Ground breaking steps have been made by Germany with the Industry 4.0 programme and other initiatives in Europe have soon followed.
This is the rationale for this year’s Co-summit theme “Smart Industry: impact of software innovation”.
For the 7th edition of this annual event, jointly organised by ITEA and ARTEMIS Industry Association, we will meet in the heart of Berlin, at the bcc - Berlin Congress Center. Participants will have the opportunity to attend international keynote speeches, a high level panel discussion on Smart Industry and roam around the inspiring project exhibition of 75 leading R&D&I projects including speakers corners fuelled by the project teams themselves.
Join us for the 2015 Co-summit and witness the impact of software innovation at the heart of where it all started!
