Collaboration is the new innovation

“Collaboration is the new innovation” said a wise person once, and this is so true! During the Automation Summit conference, it became more transparent than ever that innovation takes place through inter-active collaboration and that the time when research and innovation took place behind closed doors is long gone.

It’s when the private sector, entrepreneurs, investors, academia and public authorities meet that we can find solutions to the major complex challenges. And it is precisely in that space – between all these various organisations and businesses – that Automation Region exists to lead development at the system level and to help regional forces become national resources that can then be used in an international context.
