EXCELL foresees the collaboration of academics from 4 European countries (Hungary, Germany, UK, Belgium) in the multidisciplinary topic of Big Data Applications for Cyber-Physical Systems in Production and Logistics Networks. The main scientific and innovation focus of EXCELL was devised both from world-wide tendencies and local requirements (expressed by the regional smart specialization strategies-S3), departing from the present competences of the cooperating partners (SZTAKI, Fraunhofer-FIT, Aston and KU Leuven).
The Innovation and Networking Days allow Innovators from industry, research and public administrations to meet, share, network and discussdifferent facets of a broad topic that, in this edition, will be How Information and Communication Technologies can support environmental sustainability of production, products and services.
Dr. Markus Eisenhauer from Fraunhofer FIT was invited to an evening lecture on April 12, 2018 at the Global Manufacturing Festival in Herning, Denmark.
This festival offers insights into the future of manufacturing from a technical and economic point of view. Therefore, the festival is aimed at strategic and technical decision makers in production companies. The program is a mix of keynotes, company visits and workshop settings.
Dr. Markus Eisenhauer spoke on the topic "Trends and Challenges of Industry 4.0".
The series of ECMI conferences are devoted to enforcing the interaction between academy and industry, leading to innovations in both fields. These events have attracted leading experts from business, science and academia, and have promoted the application of novel mathematical technologies to industry.
Between May 16 and 18, 2018 , the Days of Industry at HUNGEXPO reached a great success in presenting almost all sectors of industry.
