European Technology Forum coming soon!

The European Technology Forum will take place on 26 and 27 September in Katowice – an event, during which a wide range of specialists will discuss about the European research and technology policy. The Forum will host plenary sessions and four thematic conferences, including the "Industry 4.0" conference organized by the Silesian University of Technology.

The main purpose of the European Technology Forum is to discuss the priorities of European science and technology policy and funding mechanisms for research and technological development, in particular, expected to be implemented under the 7-year Horizon Europa program, as well as the analysis of synergies between Horizon Europa and other EU and national programs in the fields of research, innovation and competitiveness. Experts will also discuss about the promotion of creating various types of networks and partnerships - both by industry, science, and public authorities - to avoid duplication of efforts and set common research and development purposes. During the event, there will also be presented the objectives of the Responsible Development Strategy for Poland in the field of research and innovation,  which should be achieved in the perspective of 2020 and 2030, and the discussion on how to implement them, with particular reference to large projects.

There will be plenary sessions and four thematic conferences: "Innovative medicine", "Industry 4.0", "From waste to resources" and "Future of transport", as part of the event.

The "Industry 4.0" conference, organized by the Silesian University of Technology, will take place on 27 September. During the event, the Rector prof.
