Business Finland invites you to join the Polish-Finnish Smart Manufacturing Business Mixer, during which you will have the opportunity to pitch your offering towards selected Polish factories interested in implementing industry 4.0 solutions into their production processes.

Poland is one of the focus countries of Business Finland’s Sustainable Manufacturing Program. Its solid manufacturing density provides many opportunities for technology and service providers offering solutions for smart factories. Polish manufacturing plants are gradually shifting towards industry 4.0 and innovative solutions in manufacturing, but still offer room for new technologies.

To support Finnish companies in getting access to potential clients in Poland, Business Finland has established cooperation with Hub4industry Digital Innovation Hub, managed by Krakow Technology Park. Hub4industry is a complex support center for industrial companies that want to introduce industry 4.0 solutions in their production plants and one of its goals is to connect Polish factory managers with providers of smart manufacturing solutions.

Finland has recently become the international partner of the “Industrial Innovations Radar” campaign run by Hub4industry. As a next step, Business Finland and Hub4industry arrange the Polish-Finnish Smart Manufacturing Business Mixer in Kraków. The event is focused on matchmaking between Polish manufacturing plants representatives and Finnish suppliers. There will be approx. 10 Finnish and 10 Polish companies joining the event with prearranged matchmaking program. Several large Polish factories has already confirmed their interest in discussions with Finnish suppliers – please contact Business Finland to learn more.

Who should participate in the event?

  • Finnish suppliers of smart manufacturing technologies and services targeted at increasing efficiency and sustainability of production processes, e.g. predictive maintenance, simulation and virtualisation, business automation and data, connectivity, quality inspection, BIM in manufacturing plants and similar.
