WHAT IS THE FUTURE INDUSTRY CONGRESS?

The Future Industry Congress is a conference on advanced, digital and connected industry. A place to know the trends and the state-of-the-art in technology applied to the factory of the future.

The 3rd edition of the Future Industry Congress is structured in 2 blocks, a theoretical/informative block that aims to offer a vision of the innovation in the industry, through a prestigious keynote speaker and a thematic block where 4 Workshops will be held. We will have the participation of some units of Eurecat Technology Center and also other leading companies on at least one of the 2018 topics.

Eurecat, the organiser of the Future Industry Congress, plays a key role in this new scenario as a knowledge-producing technology centre that serves as a bridge between progress made in R&D and systems of production.

2017 CONFERENCE OVERVIEW

2D MATERIALS AND PROCESSES

At a time when the rise of the “3D revolution” seems to eclipse all other contemporary technologies, these talks stress the great potential of “2D” for new materials like graphene (FET Flagship of the European Commission), technologies that use printed and flexible electronics and other processes that make only the surfaces of pieces and products functional.

HUMAN BRAIN TECHNOLOGIES

There is no doubt that the deepest knowledge in our brains can achieve breakthroughs in many technological fields, including medicine, neuroscience, neuromorphic engineering, brain-computer interfaces, neuro-robotics and more.
We will see how various industries around us are addressing these challenges, from eHealth to functional nutrition.

QUANTUM TECHNOLOGIES

Once again, quantum physics seems to be driving large-scale breakthroughs. We are witnessing an unparalleled international competition over cybersecurity, as the first country that manages to put a quantum computer into operation will be able to quickly and easily decode all the encrypted information currently circulating on the Internet.
The United States and China have already made their intentions clear in this area and Europe seems not to want to get left out concerning this opportunity/threat.

5G TECHNOLOGY

5G will be the next generation of mobile networks, which will replace the current 4G. Although users will not notice great improvements in their usual use of the network, the new technology will be the key to be able to continue developing the Internet of Things and connected mobility.

The new network will have a much higher frequency spectrum than the current 4G, which will allow that more devices be connected in a network that will be faster and stable.
