The cooperation between established industrial companies and creative professionals is presented in a new project.
"Industry meets Makers" starts its first phase in the context of DigitalCity.Vienna. The Vienna Business Agency funds the project and supports the initiative DigitalCity.Vienna substantially.
The objective of "Industry meets Makers" is to build a constantly growing network, in which new collaboration models between the established industry and the creative scene develop. At the beginning, top industrial enterprises formulate very specific challenges in the areas of 3D printing, robotics, Industry 4.0, Internet of Things, and Smart City Digital. The enterprises then invite the creative scene, consisting of so-called makers, to solve the described challenges during a several months-long program. Thereby, new forms of cooperation are tested and jointly developed. At the final event, on October 20th, as a part of the Digital Days 2016, the best work results and further plans for the future will be presented.
