Smart Manufacturing – Industry 4.0

Free

Panel Discussion

The U.S. Embassy Vienna, AUSSENWIRTSCHAFT AUSTRIA, the Austrian Marshall Plan Foundation and The Office of Science and Technology Austria Washington, D.C. cordially invite you.

Each year, The George C. Marshall Visit to Austria Program brings a group of decision makers from the United States to Austria, with the goal to further improve mutual understanding and to highlight Austrian innovations in industry and technology. The program was established by the Austrian Government in 2007 in recognition of the assistance Austria received from the United States after World War II.

 

The theme of the 2015 visit will be “Smart Manufacturing.” The evening at Amerika Haus will offer an opportunity to meet the participants in this year’s program and to discuss the particularly important topic of “Smart Manufacturing – Industry 4.0” from both a U.S. and an Austrian perspective.

 

(This initiative is co-sponsored by go-international, an initiative powered by the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber and the Austrian Ministry of Science, Research and Economy.)
