Partnership Event 28/02/2018BRUSSELS

Factories of the Future for Automotive Workshop

On 28th February 2018, the ‘Factories of the Future for Automotive’ event, jointly organised by ERTRAC-EGVIA and EFFRA will take place at the ‘Maison de l’Automobile’ ( ) in Brussels.

One of the principal aims of the event is to provide an opportunity for the Automotive Research & Innovation community to gain insight into key European projects being conducted within the context of Factories-of-the-Future PPP, the results of which could be exploited in the Automotive Industry.
Correspondingly the topics to be addressed during the event include:

  • Additive manufacturing (including hybrid approaches), joining technologies or other material processing technologies for flexible manufacturing
  • Flexible manufacturing and Factory automation (including robotics, zero-defect manufacturing, digital platforms in factory automation)
  • Agile supply chains and digitalisation
  • Product service and life-cycle management, engineering tools and methods (including simulation)

There will also be the opportunity to discuss the potential synergies between the activities in the areas of Green Vehicles and Factories-of-the-Future particularly with respect to FP9.

Attendance is free-of-charge – however, since the number of places available in the venue is limited, registration is obligatory.
