Photonics 4 Industrial Manufacturing

Location:
Athens, Greece

Digitalisation of industrial manufacturing is one of the most important topics and overarching objectives for contemporary Industry looking at the future. This is a global trend led by the constant need of the industry for continuous optimization in concept generation, production, and product transaction, against International competition.

In that respect, Industry 4.0 employs a synergetic combination of major innovations in digital technology, which are all in maturity stage right now, making feasible their integration and finally affecting horizontally various industrial manufacturing sectors. Such technologies are among others related with robotics, sophisticated sensors, Internet of Things (IoT), rapid prototyping (3D printing), big data analytics in real time, cloud computing, etc., altogether aiming at the integration of the physical and virtual worlds in a cross-functional global value chain, shared by many companies from many countries.

The Industry has now shifted to a new era and a novel way for organizing global operations has been introduced.

The event is organised by HPhos (Hellenic Photonics Cluster) and the aim is to bring closer the photonics community and various industrial sectors for addressing main challenges and problems that face today towards the digitalization of their manufacturing processes.

The event is structured under the following 3 sessions:

  1. The European landscape of photonics for modern industry
  2. Photonics technologies for Industrial Manufacturing
  3. Wrap up and key messages
