Industry 4.0 Brokerage Event

Is your company ready for Industry 4.0? What are your needs and challenges, and how do you get started? Join us at this matchmaking event to get inspiration from companies and researchers working in the area of Industry 4.0.

InfinIT and DTU invite companies working in the field of Industry 4.0 (I4.0) and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) to present their unmet needs and challenges at this Brokerage Event. At the event, we want to match company needs with researchers at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) and other Danish research organisations.

SEE SOME EXAMPLES OF CHALLENGES that companies are facing in relation to Industry 4.0 and Industrial IoT. We’re looking for your specific challenges to be discussed at this brokerage event.

The goal is to define proposals in the area of I4.0 to be submitted for public funding, for example Innovation Fund Denmark's June 13th Open Call.
