Factory for the Future of New Materials

Internet of Things is a network of physical objects in which the various devices in the network are in constant interaction with themselves and the environment. IoT will change our way of life, thinking and, consequently, our economy and industrial production. IoT is growing rapidly from hype to tangible reality. Due to its enormous possibilities, it is not easy to see the forest for the trees. What is the outcome of IoT in different sectors? What steps can you take as a company?

Learn more about this during the info session on 7 September at the VKC in Kortrijk. This session specifically addresses the impact and opportunities of IoT in the New Materials sector.
