Industry 4.0 Showroom

Fast information sharing and intensive interactions are crucial for further processing of research and development. The Industry 4.0 Showroom shall give a floor for open discussion on how advanced industrial production in line with the Industry 4.0 principles can impact equal opportunities, labour market and environmental principles of sustainable development. The aim is to create a place (virtual or physical) for visual and interactive presentation of the RICAIP Centre, its outputs and infrastructure, both to the public and industrial partners. All of this with respect to gender, diversity, equal opportunities, environmental issue, and different social groups. A showroom is a place that provides experience and leaves an impression. You can perceive dimensions, materials, environment, you can feel, touch, test how things work, you can be guided and get tailor-made recommendations, explanations and even real-time help. Regardless of virtually or on-site.
