Focus group meeting in Venice, 22 February 2019
The Focus Group for the Veneto area was organized by the Lead Partner Veneto Region in strong collaboration with the Project Partner (PP2) – Confindustria Veneto SIAV S.p.A. ,and took place on the morning of Friday 22 February 2019 in Venice, at the Veneto Region premises. Instead of organizing two separate events, dedicated respectively to companies and stakeholders, it was agreed to create a single one that would include both.
The event attended around 50 participants, representing companies active in the shipbuilding industry, its supply chain and logistics, business schools and training institutions, Universities and research centers, associations and consulting firms for innovation, incubators and technology transfer centers and local authorities.
For the occasion, a press release was issued on behalf of the Venetian Councilor for Economic Development, Mr. Roberto Marcato.
The meeting was split in two moments, first a plenary session where the FUTURE 4.0 project was presented to the participants, as well as the results of the research conducted by the Partners coordinated by the Polytechnic of Bari. Subsequently a second phase was organized with two separate sessions dedicated to the two groups (companies and stakeholders), with the aim to collect considerations, contributions, experiences related to the concept of “Industry 4.0”, and specific needs of companies.
