The IN4WOOD project consortium worked very hard to prepare the final conference of this successful project which will take place in Brussels on 30 October 2019. It is titled “The next generation of education and training in the wood and furniture sectors and why it matters for development agencies” and aims to attract European professionals from various fields of expertise. In fact, the final conference will gather in one place entrepreneurs, researchers, technology experts, regional and EU officers. Attendees will gain an overview of how key industries – wood and furniture; luxury; food & beverage – can best modernise and innovate based on the IN4WOOD project results to get ready for changes imposed by emerging technologies.
The successful experience of IN4WOOD for the wood and furniture sectors will pave the way for a wide discussion about challenges and opportunities Industry 4.0 (I4.0) with inputs from representatives of HE/VET, companies and regional development agencies (RDAs).
This final conference also ensures that words are followed by deeds: Erasmus+ and Horizon2020 programmes are presented and “Project Champions” will facilitate participants to develop winning project ideas to get ready for the I4.0. To conclude, participants will deal with the question about the impact of IN4WOOD not only on the wood and furniture sector but also on the luxury and food & beverage sectors. In fact, the example provided by this project through the development of a “virtual learning platforms dedicated to applied sciences of wood and furniture” can also help industry, learning institutions and governments to address the future labour market needs at large.
