The leading international fair for the processing, analysis and handling of powder and bulk solids POWTECH will run from 9–11 April 2019 in Nuremberg/DE and will see the premiere of the Networking Campus, the new POWTECH think tank for the technologies and markets of the future.
The Networking Campus is a communication hub and discussion platform for young researchers, start-ups and developers. The heart of the campus is an open presentation stage, where participants can get involved in an interactive programme based on the BarCamp format. In brief presentations, workshops and discussions, with a research poster or a stand at the adjacent table-top exhibition, all participants offer insights into the future of modern bulk solids and particle technology.
Exhibitors, networking campus participants and trade visitors can all contribute on the moderated presentation stage. The programme is created on a daily basis. Anyone can submit a presentation, workshop or TED-style talk up until check-in and start of the BarCamp, i.e. the presentation series. Interaction and dialogue are what it’s all about.
Thematically, the Networking Campus will focus on Future Markets and Future Technologies and there will be BarCamps on the following topics:
• Future Markets: Energy Storage and Energy Converters, Closed-Loop Economy, Additive Manufacturing;
• Future Technologies: Digitalization/Digital Transformation in the Bulk Solids Segment; Human and Cobot; Virtual, Augmented, Mixed Reality: Opportunities and Limitations in Bulk Solids Operations.
Start-ups and research establishments can register for a table-top in the exhibition area of the Networking Campus at www.powtech.de/networking-campus.
A jobs board with interview room for ad-hoc interviews and the DECHEMA and VDI-GVC ProcessNet Café are welcome additions to the Networking Campus.
