22.09.2014, Vienna/Alpbach i. Tyrol
IPN was invited by the ‘österreichischen Forschungsförderungsgesellschaft (FFG)’ and the ministry of transport, innovations and technology (BMVIT) as one of three high-tech start-ups to attend the technology talks at the Forum Alpbach in Tyrol. The goal of these technology talks is to survey Austria as an industrial site as well as to discuss the main prevailing industrial challenges and innovations of the next years. According to this, the list of attendees was filled with the top-class personalities such as the CEOs of companies like AVL List, Rosenbauer, AT&S, voestalpine and many more.
For us an ambitious young company the participation in an event like this is a huge opportunity to present our developments and our concerns to a top-class auditorium. One of the main elements of the technology talks was the presentation of the cooperation between the three start-ups and three of the top-class companies attending the talks.
We from IPN presented our cooperation with AVL List which aims at analysing the capabilities of our intelligent system for predictive maintenance in the fields of large bore engines (cargo ships, power plants) and engine test beds. Professor Helmut List (CEO of AVL List) presented his impressions of the cooperation. At this point we want to thank Professor Helmut List for the positive words and the good cooperation between the companies until today. These positive words and the perspective for a long term cooperation are a huge compliment for us.
Following the technology talks we used the opportunity to get in contact with the industrial decision makers leading to interesting talks. We could arouse the interest to possible collaborations for example in the field of vehicle monitoring as well as the field of production optimisation. Furthermore, we are looking forward to a long lasting and good collaboration with AVL List.
We want to thank all the attendees and the host, Pioneers.io for the scouting as well as the president of the parliament mrs. Doris Bures for this great opportunity.
