As we start a new year, we want to take time to reflect on what an amazing end of the year CONFIRM had. In December several milestones helped to further develop Industry 4.0 and the CONFIRM network.
SFI Mission Trip California
CONFIRM was invited on the SFI mission trip to California where we were given access to research institutes and technology companies. This trip enabled an exchange to help strengthen the relationship between the US and Ireland as well as provided an opportunity to cross-pollinate ideas and best practice. Over the week CONFIRM visited over 10 companies including:
- VM Ware
- D School @ Stanford
- Toyota Research Institute
CONFIRM visit to Clean Energy and Smart Manufacturing Institute (CESMII) in Los Angeles
CONFIRM visit to Accenture Labs San Francisco as part of SFI- Department of Enterprise, Business & Innovation research mission
Ireland’s Industry 4.0 Strategy 2020-2025
CONFIRM was delighted to attend Ireland’s Industry 4.0 Strategy 2020-2025. With manufacturing being a huge driver of direct and indirect employment as well as GVA (Gross Value Add) it is important that their is a community of practice where everyone can learn and implement technology to best position them for Industry 4.0.
As the digital transformation of manufacturing occurs CONFIRM will continue to work collaboratively to pioneer research excellence to meet current and future manufacturing needs.
