Flanders Make Symposium 2019: The Future of the Manufacturing Industry

On 27 November, we held our Annual Symposium together with almost 450 registered visitors. CEOs, R&D Managers and business managers of both large and small companies discovered what the future will have in stall for the manufacturing industry through inspiring presentations, concrete success stories and accessible demonstrations.

Apart from the presentations, we had no less than 23 demo set-ups, ranging from indoor localisation systems over the use of lightweight materials for quieter and better performing shock absorbers up to renewed work cell set-ups in which man and robot work together harmoniously. These set-ups were divided according to the competence clusters of our research to emphasise the specific nature of our research even better. No wonder that during lunch, coffee breaks and walking dinner, these set-ups attracted a big audience. 

Still, the Symposium is more than presentations and demonstrations alone, networking also plays a major role. Companies, research centres and knowledge partners meet one another while having a bite and a drink and discuss potential synergies. 

Would you like to join us (again) next year? Be sure to mark 26 November 2019 in your agenda. More information on this event will follow in the next couple of months.
