How to become a Factory of the Future?

Nowadays it is more and more important that a sustainable and digital production goes alongside with efficient technologies. But how can a company best deal with the constant development of new technologies and which difficulties do companies have to face in the process? Which technologies are promising and sustainable and which one are not? These and other questions will be discussed at the midterm conference of the European project BIFOCAlps. BIFOCAlps’ main objective is to boost collaboration and synergies among main actors of the Alpine Space innovation system for a sustainable, smart and competitive development of the manufacturing value chain towards the Factory or the Future.
