The event will have international keynote speakers, a high level panel discussion on Smart Industry and an inspiring project exhibition including speakers corners fuelled by the project teams themselves.

Smart Industry: impact of software innovation

This year's theme will be 'Smart Industry: impact of software innovation'. 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. Join us for the 2015 Co-summit and witness the impact of software innovation at the heart of where it all started!

The event will feature:

  • International keynote speakers from industry and Public Authorities
  • A panel session on the theme with European high level panellists
  • An exhibition showcasing around 75 European leading R&D&I projects
  • Speakers corners fuelled by the project teams themselves
  • The ARTEMIS Community session & Recognition Award Ceremony

Registration deadline: 13 February 2015 (subject to availability).
