The CENTRAL EUROPEAN COOPERATION FOR INDUSTRY 4.0 Workshop this year was held in Budapest, Hungary on 20-21 September. The event was organized by the National Research, Development and Innovation Office of Hungary (NRDIO) and the European Commission Directorates-General for Regional and Urban Policy (DG REGIO) and Research and Innovation (DG RTD). The purpose of the event was to provide an opportunity for cooperation and exchanging ideas for the actors involved and interested in Industry4.0 related research, development, innovation and funding.

As Industry4.0 and the two main topics of the workshop (Cost-effective SmartFactory, Human-Robot Collaboration) are core research areas of EPIC, MTA SZTAKI was represented by its director Prof. László Monostori as a key-note speaker, by Prof. József Váncza (head of EMI Lab.) as the moderator of the panel discussion on human-robot collaboration, by Dr. Gábor Erdős and by Dr. Géza Haidegger (senior research associates) as presenters.
