The partners of the Knowledge Alliance for Upskilling Europe's SMEs to Meet the Challenges of Smart Engineering (short: SMeART) have gathered with external partners for a visit to Hannover last week. In addition to visiting the Hannover Messe, they also met in the premises of the project partner Fachhochschule des Mittelstands (short: FHM) in Hannover, where the participants were given presentations and networked.
From April 1stto April 3rd the partner organisations of the Knowledge Alliance for Upskilling Europe's SMEs to Meet the Challenges of Smart Engineering (short: SMeART) and guests gathered in Hannover. In addition to scientific presentations and examples of best practice, the focus was also on the international exchange of experience. Also, the participants visited the Hannover Messe together on 2nd and 3rd April.
On the first day of the event, the scientific project leader, Professor Manfred Leisenberg (FHM), spoke about Big Data Analysis in the companies of tomorrow. Afterwards, Sandra Verweij, representative of the project partner Parbleu, informed about the TechValley program, a project in which Parbleu is intensively involved. The day ended with a lecture by Philippe Saey, representative of KU Leuven, who spoke about code generation from MATLAB/Simulink. The technically in-depth presentation is based on a consulting project carried out by KU Leuven.
After the participants visited the Hannover Messe on the second day, they met again in the FHM to exchange their experiences with the piloting of the tools developed by SMeART.
The third and last day of the activity was spent entirely at the Hannover Fair. Among other things, the participants were given an exclusive guided tour of the "It's OWL" technology network stand.
