Industry 4.0/5.0 Institute Planning Workshop

UC is establishing Industry 4.0/5.0 Institute, with a vision of creating a university-industry collaborative platform for developing and enhancing accessibility of innovative Industry 4.0/5.0 technologies and industry best practices. This institute will bring UC’s faculty members/researchers and students together with industry practitioners in a multi-disciplinary environment to solve the most challenging problems facing the industry. As a next step, we are organizing a Planning Workshop on Friday, March 18, 2022, in which potential industrial members and UC faculty collaborators are invited. The workshop will focus on introducing institute’s business model, showcasing institute’s capabilities in terms of resources and expertise, and obtaining inputs from participants on gaps/needs of industry and proposed business model.

Please join us in this workshop and participate in the process of forming this institute by providing your thoughts on biggest gaps/challenges and formulating institute’s engagement activities that will provide value to its industrial members, and UC’s faculty members and students.
