Canada-Germany Industry 4.0 Partnering Workshop

The Canada-Germany Industry 4.0 Partnering Workshop will take place at the Embassy of Canada to Germany in Berlin. The goal of this initiative is to establish applied R&D collaborations and co-develop Industry 4.0 technology solutions between Canadian and German companies, supported by academic and research center partners, leading to future commercial opportunities in Canada and Germany.

27-28 February 2018 | Berlin, Canadian Embassy

The Canada-Germany Industry 4.0 Partnering Event will be a managed partnering event where Canadian delegate profiles will be developed, compiled and shared in advance with German partners in order to recruit German delegates for the event.

The event will begin with Canadian and German presentations on programmes to support collaborative international industrial R&D projects, presentations from German guests on the breadth of German advanced manufacturing capabilities, and continue with individual presentations by Canadian and German delegates on their capabilities, collaborative project ideas and partnership needs.

A structured format for presentations and matchmaking will be provided to the Canadian and German delegates.
