The PROsumer.NET Initiative, partner projects and related Technology Platforms have presented recent research developments and showcased project results at the Industrial Technologies Conference 2014 in Athens, Greece, 9 - 11 April 2014. This biennial major event, held regularly since 2010 and this year part of the Greek EU Presidency programme, is dedicated to Nano, Materials and Production technology innovation.
The PROsumer.NET Initiative was presented in the workshop From Mass Production to Customisation and Personalisation: The New Era of Manufacturing. Many partner projects and their representatives were also involved in this and other sessions of the rich Conference programme.
The Megaron Athens International Conference Center was also home to a large exhibition, IndustryTech 2014, dedicated to ongoing activities, demonstrators and projects in the industrial technology world. The joint exhibition booth of PROsumer.NET and its partner Platforms and projects (among them ADDFactor, Fashion-able, CTC, EuroFit, Man-Made, FFD and MyWear) has attracted the interest of the visiting crowds and the more qualified attention of speakers, researchers and institutional representatives, from the EU to the more local levels.
The booth was shortlisted for the Most Innovative Exhibitor Award, and honoured with the visit of the High-Level Members of the appointed Jury, which included European Commission Director Ms. Clara de la Torre.
