On November 28, 2017 Klaster AT+R organised an open seminar on "Industry 4.0 in Mechatronics, Robotics and Automation Manufacturing Systems" in order to discuss selected aspects of Industry 4.0 implementation in industrial and social practice.

The seminar involved representatives of industry, academia and local government. Experts presented their projects that could be used to set up a platform bringing research results into practice with the involvement of companies and local authorities and services. The discussion demonstrated an interest of the involved parties and a potential for successful cooperation.
