The next generation of robots could be entering the workplace alongside humans, but this first needs some collaborative principles to be established. SYMBIO-TIC has developed a system for such a safe, dynamic, intuitive and cost-effective working environment.
EU Industry Days 2019 focused on key industrial challenges such as sustainability, digitalisation, investment and globalisation. The event, on 5-6 February, demonstrated how EU industrial policy benefits European citizens and provided input for future policy making. EU Industry Days gathered around 1,800 participants from across Europe and beyond, including stakeholders representing industry, trade unions, national and regional authorities, and civil society.
Between the 10th and 12th December 2018, three members of our Institute (Gergely Horváth - EMI, Csaba Kardos - EMI, Balázs Pataki - DSD) participated on an integration meeting of the H2020 project SYMBIO-TIC.
In the competition to identify Europe's top innovators, the European Commission has nominated our institute for its research and development work in the project SYMBIO-TIC. An open vote decides the winner, votes can be given until 12. November.
In order to demonstrate the end of a current 2-year-long R&D joint project, MTA SZTAKI and the consortium-leader HEPENIX Ltd. had jointly organized a conclusive event for a large number of industry-oriented experts. The target of the INTRO:4.0 project was to support and enable SMEs and other industrial enterprises to introduce new industrial technologies, offered by the international movement named Industry 4.0. The project aimed to serve Use-Cases, digital technologies to the manufacturing and other industrial companies.
