Industrial leaders from all over Norway flocked to Oslo for ‘Agora: Industri Futurum’, a major conference for The Federation of Norwegian Industry. Minister of Trade and Industry Monica Mæland was among the attendees.
Future Robotics, a network for digitalization, automation and robotics in Agder, had a stand to present the more than 200 companies, six business clusters and the University of Agder, committed to robotics.
“The objective was to showcase how the clusters, the industry and academia work together to increase competitiveness and efficiency by automation, digitalization and robotics. We are always looking for other companies and organizations that share and work within our fields of interest. This was an opportunity to meet them”, says Kristine Wikander, Project Manager for Future Robotics.
CEO Anne-Grete Ellingsen at GCE NODE gave a presentation based on the title: ‘Collaboration accelerates integrated operations and Industry 4.0; Time to take the next step’.
“Modern equipment has a large number of sensors that produce a lot of data. We need to access and process this data more intelligently. This is a high priority for GCE NODE and for the industry, as it will enable us to develop more efficient solutions for the future”, says Ellingsen.
Lars Petter Maltby from Eyde Innovation Cluster also held a presentation with the title: ‘Brilliant Industry – what is the impact of Industri 4.0 on our process industry’.
