Industry Digital Evolution - IDE 2023

Building a resilient and sustainable transformation in key domains for fostering international competition

Digital Transformation is increasingly affecting today's industrial domain. Large companies and SMEs, together with research centres, are collaborating to develop, apply and innovate their organisational and infrastructure assets with new digital solutions designed with accuracy, insight, and focus on overcoming industrial problems. Competitiveness is closely linked to cost management and resource allocation in new practices that push organisations to leverage their resilience and anti-fragility skills.

IDE 2023 aims at providing three exciting days of discussion and debate between experts from different industries with the objective of sharing technological experiences, as well as problems and solutions that have fostered the current competitive scenario. Speakers from academia and industry share the stage in five sections covering different industry domains. Experiences emerging from research and practice will be contaminated and evolve into new opportunities and ideas.
