Within the context of the H2020 European initiative Daedalus, conceived to foster the creation of a digital marketplace for distributed industrial automation, the IEC61499 Competence Centre will be launched being the focal aggregation point of the technologies needed to deploy within the market an interoperable platform for CPS. 

The Competence Centre will act as "last kilometer" of the technology transfer process, maximizing the impact of the disruptive IEC61499 standard encapsulating innovative solutions directly within the market. 

The launch event of the Competence Centre will be on 18th-19th October 2016 @Milan. The two-days event has been conceived to embrace all representatives of the industrial automation value chain, from platform developers to end-users, and structured to tackle two main objectives: 

  • 1st day: broad discussion with the main European representatives of automation technologies, starting a path that will lead to a new revision of the IEC61499 international standard;
  • 2nd day: presentation to business public the infinite opportunities that the concepts of distributed automation can bring to the manufacturing sector. 

Considering the relevance of the Competence Centre for MAYA, the consortium welcomes and supports this initiative!
