During MANUFUTURE 2013 conference two Parallel Workshop Sessions will be organised and they will concern following aspects:

 

Monday, October 7th

14.00-16.00

Parallel Workshop Session W1

The Factories of the Future (FoF): FP7 Projects and Initiatives - Results and Business Opportunities (more information about projects and presentations)

W1.1 Flexible and High Performance Manufacturing: Impact through Clustering Activities

W1.2 Supply Chains for Customised Products

W1.3 Digital and Smart Factories

W1.4 Social and Environmental Sustainability

W1.5 Manufacturing: the Enabler for the Integration of Technologies

 

Since its launch in 2009, the Factories of the Future public-private partnership has proven to be a highly successful model for the close co-operation of the European Commission and the European industry. In close cooperation, the European Commission’s Directorate-Generals for Research and Innovation (DG RTD) and Communications, Networks, Content and Technology (DG CONNECT) have devoted € 650 million stemming from the 7th Framework Programme for Research, Technological Development and Demonstration (FP7) over the period 2010 to 2013. In four years 140 projects have been launched involving over 700 organisations across Europe. These parallel workshops discuss achieved results and impacts of successfully run projects representing different research priorities of the European manufacturing industry as well as topics which are seen imperative for Europe addressing both societal challenges and industrial competitiveness and opening also new business opportunities.

Conference participants are offered four alternative industry tours to innovation intensive companies in Vilnius:

Tour A: Laser & Engineering Technologies Cluster LITEK (EKSPLA,  OPTIDA, FTMC)
Tour B: PRECIZIKA Group (PRECIZIKA METROLOGY, SOLET PHOTOVOLTAICS,

PRECIZIKA-MET SC)
Tour C: ARGINTA Group, BROLIS SEMICONDUCTORS, PBS
Tour D: VOESTALPINE Group (VOESTALPINE
 VAE LEGETECHA)

 

As an alternative to industry tours the participants can have face-to-face meetings e.g. for preparation of FoF 2014 proposals or B2B match-making meetings for business or partnering purposes.

 

In addition the conference offers still three alternative parallel workshops, one discussing the funding opportunities of the European Research Council (ERC), second discussing the work and opportunities of existing European Technology Platforms which are closely cooperating with the Manufuture Platform, and third discussing Future Oriented Activities (FLA) which are a key factor to describe the possible scenarios for future economic development and sustainability of the Eurozone.
