CECE-CEMA Summit 2015
Event focuses on smart regulation for smart machines and puts disruptive technology in the spotlight
DIGITAL technologies and new business models are transforming traditional value chains in the construction equipment industry. The implications this has for the whole sector and its people, companies, construction processes, for Europe as a manufacturing location, and for the design of suitable EU regulations will be discussed at the CECE-CEMA Summit taking place in Brussels from 23–24 September 2015.
Construction machines are getting smarter with every generation, supporting what are currently referred to as ‘smart construction jobs’. In today’s networked world construction machines, operations, services and people are connected, and ‘big data’ has made its way into the business.
Increasingly, machines are being tailored for a specific job and for a specific customer. At the CECE-CEMA Summit, organized by the European construction and farming equipment trade associations, the industry will put such developments in the spotlight, and reflect upon the impact for the regulatory framework that will have to keep up with these new realities.
With the industry calling for a competition-fit framework to help master the transformation into the new, digitally driven world – one that will integrate new developments and provide stability where it is needed, will Europe be able to provide the right regulatory framework and the necessary incentives to support the investments companies are making in order to be at the forefront of innovation?
At the Summit, industry panelists will discuss with politicians how EU regulators can support the ‘smart machine’ trend and establish the right framework to unleash the potential of construction machinery manufacturers in Europe.
A high-level policy event will be held on 23 September in Concert Noble, Brussels, with the CECE information sessions’ Economic Forum and Technical Forum taking place the following day. For more information or to register for the Summit, visit: www.cece-cema-summit.eu
