On 29th October 2015, our HIGHTS Partners had a meeting with delegations from Japanese Industry at the Headquarters of Objective Software GmbH in Munich Germany.
The leader of the visit was the Chambers of the Commerce and Industry of Osaka as well as the vice-president of NTT Docomo. The meeting was organised jointly by Innotec21, Jacobs University and Objective Software.
The discussion agenda was “the future of Industry” in line with Industry 4.0, where automation system with wireless positioning and communication plays a key role. The group visited the BMW factory in Munich after the discussion, to see the concept in reality. (BMW is also the HIGHTS associate member.)
The meeting established good business relation and ended with the agreement of an HIGHTS seminar to be held in 2016 at the Osaka Chamber of Commerce. Also, some of the participants showed interest in joining the HIGHTS project as Associated Members Group.
