  • Julien Mascolo, Senior Researcher in Factory Innovation Department at FIAT Research Centre, will present the future of manufacturing for the automotive industry.
  • Stéphane Amarger, Paris Node Director, and his team will develop EIT Digital activities in France. Sentryo, 3YOURMIND (coached start-ups) and CPS Lifetime Awareness (supported Innovation Activity) in the Cyber-Physical Systems Action Line will illustrate them.
  • 10 start-ups coming from across Europe, all EIT Digital Idea Challenge finalists in the Cyber Physical Systems category, will pitch their innovations on stage.
