Workshop Description: TRINITY – Robotics, IIoT and Cybersecurity – Innovation Network invites you to share your views on how we can support the R&D activities of European stakeholders? What are the best ways to improve the agility in manufacturing. Join our workshop to discuss on research topics supporting agile manufacturing. Join our round table discussions to contribute. Join TRINITY Innovation Network and help us develop a community supporting the European manufacturing SMEs and stakeholders. Structure of the workshop Well start with introduction to TRINITY Innovation Network and the follow up activities that have been continuing to develop the robotics technologies and strengthen the network. After introductions the audience will be split into smaller discussion groups. Discussion is initiated by online Miroboard/Mural on topics related to innovation networks and emerging technologies needed to enable agile manufacturing. Each discussion group will answer minimum two questions. Main findings and the key points of the group discussions will be presented in the end and made available to larger audience in a form of a WS report. Results will contribute towards the sustainability plan of the network.

Intended Outcome: Workshop discussion topics of common interest, success stories, use cases, etc, Workshop on recent developments in technology or applications, Information about community involvement and services offered (e.g. DIHs, open calls, platforms, …)
