Industry Day

The second day of the workshop, Friday, November 22, will have a special focus on Industry needs and priorities, hosting a panel discussion where invited CTOs and R&D managers from several SMEs and Large Enterprises (regional, national and international companies) will contribute with their talks about challenging scientific and technical issues with special relevance to the field. A discussion involving all the participants will follow the series of presentation.


The entrepreneurial fabric of the Emilia Romagna region, as well as that of all the nation,  includes a number of firms that are highly competitive at the international level and even more with the potential to grow and face the challenges of innovation and internationalization. In this context, it is profitable to promote a panel discussion on the topics of Industry 4.0 and the connections between the real world of industrial installations and the virtual world of information technology. Emphasis will be placed to the role of systems and control in leveraging and shaping the future development of manufacturing, with an eye to sustainability and respect for the environment.


Each Invited Talk will focus on the following aspects:

  • Company profile
  • Core products
  • Core technologies      
  • Evolving context
  • Competitive scenario      
  • Technological roadmap      
  • Challenges and open problems
  • Specifications


The panel discussion is organized with the support of Confindustria Emilia Romagna Ricerca (CERR), the Office for Research, Innovation and Technology Transfer of Confindustria Emilia Romagna and Digital Innovation Hub ER.
