  • Initial interaction among running clusters (predictive maintenance, AI for manufacturing)
  • Open discussion on ZDM opportunities at 2nd part of HE (2025-2027) and beyond HE.

The event will run from 9.00 -12:15 at the Bluepoint building, Bd Auguste Reyers 80, Brusells and there will also be a remote connection link for those who can not attend in person.
