NRW.Global Business Japan, the Japanese subsidiary of the Trade and Investment Agency of the German State of North Rhine-Westphalia, presents the Fireplace WebTalk “Production Technology and DX: Solutions from RWTH Aachen University - New Approaches and Opportunities for German Japanese Business Cooperation”. Come, explore, and discuss the opportunities of the digital transformation in industry.
Digital transformation (DX) in industry has made big progress through Germany’s Industrie 4.0 and Japan’s Society 5.0 as well as other such initiatives.

We invite you to meet and explore digital transformation opportunities and challenges with Prof. Dr.-Ing. Thomas Gries, Director, RWTH Aachen Institute of Textile Technology, Dipl.-Wirt.-Ing. Martin Plutz, Managing Director, oculavis GmbH, Aachen, Mr. Arash Rezaey, Mittelstand 4.0-Kompetenzzentrum Textil Vernetzt (SME 4.0 Competence Center Networked Textiles) and other panelists from Germany and Japan.
