Coordinated by University of Siegen, ATHENA contributes as one of 19 exhibitors to the joint stand of the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Industry, Climate Action and Energy of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia, the federal state of Germany in which Siegen is located.
At the fair, five ATHENA partners will showcase different exhibits on IoT, robotics, and smart sensing. In addition to University of Siegen, Polytechnic Institute of Porto, University of Maribor, University of Orléans, and Carinthia University of Applied Sciences will be present.
A variety of offers for companies
The exhibits draw attention to ATHENA’s main research fields: automation, digitalisation, and sensor technology. The five universities will display examples of projects, technologies, and products to improve the human experience of work. A special focus lies on the interaction between humans and machines.
