Program 2023

The COVID-19 pandemic, the current war in Ukraine and the crisis with Russia have irrevocably changed long-standing business paradigms. It is imperative for manufacturers to prepare for subsequent major and minor disruptions that threaten “business as usual.” Smart Industry solutions can therefore play an important role in creating a resilient and resilient organization.

At the same time, climate change is a global challenge. Goals of efficiency of production processes are now complemented by goals for sustainable production. Industry 4.0 technologies support the creation of future-proof manufacturing companies. In order to take advantage of the benefits offered by new technologies, a coordinated approach to stepwise modernization of operations is needed, aimed at rethinking production processes.
