Smart Industry Forum

Copenhagen June 8-9, 2017

Join us at this year's summit where we will go through the current hot-topics.

Copenhagen June 8-9, 2017

It’s All About Data
– It’s All About People

Our first Summit in 2016 was focusing on basics, terminology and the potential impact of Smart Industry or Industry 4.0. The upcoming Summit 2017 will concentrate on the current key-challenges and will examine how we can take these hurdles.

For harvesting the benefits of Smart Industry or Industry 4.0 we will need to get our sensors, actuators, mechatronic modules and machines online. We simply need to collect data. This will not fly without having data security and especially also data ownership under control. The second key-challenge is within ourselves: It is the so-called “People Factor”. Transforming threats into opportunities will require cooperation across disciplines and even across companies, countries and cultures. We will need to change our mind-set as well as many of our historic paradigms by aligning technology, processes and people in a completely new way.

From Thursday lunch-time to Friday afternoon, we will go through the current hot-topics and bring you fully up-to-date. Our experts will present their inputs in leadership-relevant language. Our power-package of inspiration and information includes:

  • A joint look on our Innovation Radar.
  • Outlook: A day in 2025.
  • Status of global standardization.
  • Common grounds in different industries?
  • Focus area: It’s all about data.
  • Focus area: It’s all about people.
