First Australo-French Meeting on Innovation for Industry of the Future
Time & Location
About The Event
Innovation is the main driver for the renewal of Industry in the XXIst century and more specifically of manufacturing and production. In one hand industry is experiencing a strong revolution with more innovative design and lean value-oriented processes and in another hand Data and Artificial Intelligence are re-inventing all the design and production chains and their related competencies and jobs.
This initiative consists of creating a specific space where academic (Centrale Supelec, Flinders U., GEMA Group, UQ, UTS...), big companies (Naval Group, Dassault system, Thalès,…) meet start-ups and small structures (incubators, accelerators, open innovation institute…) in an “Open Innovation” framework where ideas and innovations are exchanged in a fast and agile process benefiting for both big and small organizations. The First Australo-French Meetings on Innovation for Industry of the Future is a key starting initiative to jointly think, exchange, and work on that crucial topic of industry for the future and its relations to innovation. Both French and Australian institutions will join their efforts to create this new community linked with industry and corporate partners. Discussions will also focus on skills and competencies needed for a new industry, taking into account Australian and French cultures.
This initiative will devote time for working groups aiming at proposing clear objectives and a short to middle-term roadmap including joint projects and events, faculty and student exchanges, internships and PhD programs, start-up seeds and co-incubation… The expectation is to concretize an Innovation-based Industry community and framework amongst the participants, which shall be open to more partners, and to propose concrete spaces and events to be co-managed and co-organized.
