The Siemens x FAU Research and Innovation Ecosystem Erlangen-Nuremberg Conference on The Factory of the Future was held at JOSEPHS on 22. October 2021.

And this event had it all, which makes personal exchange an interaction so valuable: Great keynote speakers like Siemens CEO Dr. Roland Busch, FAU President Prof. Dr. Joachim Hornegger, Siemens Vice President Service for Factory Automation Dr. Marina Wallisch and Head of Fraunhofer IIS Prof. Dr. Alexander Martin, who described in inspiring presentations and panel discussions the current implementation state of the digitization of industrial value creation. The audience heard visions for the future around the new oil of our time—data—and the beneficial application of AI in the field of human-computer interaction.

Wi1 Chair and FAU Vice-President Outreach Prof. Dr. Kathrin M. Möslein and Siemens Global Head of University Relations Dr. Natascha Eckert highlighted the great value of close cooperation between global players like Siemens and highly innovative universities like FAU for both sides. Moreover, Sascha Julian Oks and Dr. Max Jalowski represented the Wi1 spin-off QuartRevo at the conference and gave a presentation on stakeholder-centric design of Industry 4.0 systems.

We are looking forward to the further exchange in this great community!
