Industry 4.0 Congress & Industry 4.0 Award

As one of the leading experts for industrial digitization, Industry 4.0 and Industrial IoT, ROI has established a wide network of innovation leaders and pioneers on these topics in recent years. 

As part of the annual Industry 4.0 Congress, these experts come together to discuss the trends and best practices of industrial digitization. The event organised by ROI in cooperation with the trade journal Produktion and the Süddeutsche Verlag serves as a guide and leading event for the themes Industry 4.0, digital transformation and industrial IoT in the German-speaking area. 

In various technical lectures, high-profile experts from the economy and science give an overview of the main developments and major trends in the Industry 4.0 environment. The topics of recent years have included: ‘New business models’, ‘Work 4.0’, ‘Smart data’ and ‘IT security’. In addition, a virtual factory tour and intensive best-practice sessions in small groups offer additional insights into the practice of leading Industry 4.0 use cases. In the accompanying exhibition, participants can also find out about new products and solutions in the Industry 4.0 environment. A joint evening event then provides an ideal setting for informal dialogue in a relaxed atmosphere. 

Industry 4.0 Award – Germany’s best digitization projects

Within the framework of the two-party event, the best practice solutions are presented with the Industry 4.0 Award. The prize has been awarded since 2013 and has now established itself as one of the most important benchmarks for digitization projects in the German-speaking area. It recognises companies that have successfully integrated elements of the Smart factory, Smart products or Smart services into their Value creation processes. 

All companies that have successfully realised an Industry 4.0 solution – whether comprehensive or as proof of concept – eligible. The winners are subsequently determined in a three-stage process: on the basis of a questionnaire, an on-site audit by ROI and by the assessment of a specialist jury. Participation in the competition is free of charge.
