A series of workshops will help you understand the opportunities presented by Mechatronics Innovation Lab.

Workshop topics include General Robotics, Artificial Intelligence & Virtual Reality, Welding Robotics, Sensor & Vision, and 3D Printing. The first four workshops are held in January, the last in March.

“This is a series of workshops designed to let participants explore and understand what MIL can do for businesses, entrepreneurs and researchers. Our goal is to educate and encourage NODE companies to seize the opportunities that this state-of-the-art facility provides,” says Bjørn Saltermark, Project Manager at GCE NODE.

Mechatronics Innovation Lab opened last August and is now fully equipped with robots, 3D printers and other pieces of high-tech equipment, following multi-million dollar investments.

“MIL is a powerful instrument that will help the industry increase efficiency, cut costs and reduce emissions. Testing and qualification of new equipment and new solutions at MIL will reduce time-to-market. Thus, it is important for GCE NODE companies to become familiar with MIL,” says Saltermark.

The workshop format allows for only 4 to 6 companies – and a total of 12 to 15 people – to participate at each workshop. Additional workshops will be arranged if necessary.

This offer extends only to companies within the GCE NODE cluster.
