Innovations thrive on exchange. From digitalization, autonomous driving to Industry 4.0 – both in Germany and France, scientists and companies are face with these socially relevant topics. That is the reason why AKKA Technologies, one of the leading engineering and development service providers, has joined forces with the German-French Academy for the Industry of the Future, founded by the German Technical University of Munich (TUM) and the French Institut Mines-Télécom (IMT), to create an exciting new interactive format where academic partners and industry experts work hand in hand across borders and across disciplines to develop solutions for the industry of the future.

At the first interactive “German-French Industry of the Future Workshop” on June 24th, 2021, over 60 participants from academia and industry came together to collaborate on how machine learning can push the boundaries of digital twins.

Paul-Guilhem Meunier, Project Manager of the Franco-German Academy for the Industry of the Future: “The main mission of the Franco-German Academy for the Industry of the Future is to promote the complementary nature of research and training skills between the two countries on cutting-edge technological issues. France and Germany have a long tradition of innovation for economic development. Today, we are capitalizing on this heritage to develop European leadership in the context of the advent of Industry 4.0. With this technology workshop, we seek to meet a sovereignty challenge by developing know-how in artificial intelligence applied to industry. “
