Industry 2030 – How can Sweden be a winner in the future´s industry landscape
Mats Holmgren, Technical Director, Swerea
What does it take for a industry production to be competitive?
A modern, sustainable and competitive industry production is vital for us to maintain occupation and welfare in Sweden in the future. To be able to meet the global competition, we have to aim for long-term research, development and innovation. From VINNOVAs point of view, we are investing in coorporation programs, where important challenges of society are used as a driving force for innovation and where we connect operators within trade and industry, public sector and academy to be able to strenghten Sweden´s innovative ability.

3D printing, what is it and how do you do objects in full color?
Basics of 3D printing and the various techniques used. The seminar will demonstrate that today, we can make cheap 3D printing in full color by the ICC and with over a million colors!
Carl Schilling Anderson, Owner and Founder, Thaiber AB
Why engage in production-related information - what business benefits can it can lead to
Imagine if you could :
- Collect all production data ( "Big Data" ) structured in a standardized format
- Visualize and analyze data in real time to make the right decision
... Leading to increased productivity and quality with a return of investment of less than 1 year.
Erik Jansson, Senior specialist consult, Manufacturing Information

How long-term environmental thinking can benefit businesses
"The world asks for environmental technology. Sweden has great potential, we have experience in the field and good technical knowledge. There are many new entrepreneurs with good ideas in the starting blocks and the investors are almost ready, but something causes them to hesitate. What? Are they just cowards? Yes, sometimes perhaps, but often it is because they are unsure of profitability. Why? The options that are of less advantage of the environment are cheap when they do not pay their environmental costs.
If we who are causing emissions do not pay for our pollution, someone else gets to pay now or later. It is unfair, of course, but it also means that the market works poorly because the environment better alternatives cannot compete as they should. Technology development is hampered by the low taxes, new solutions never gets the opportunity to be implemented and desired changes fail. This, if anything, is dangerous for Sweden, for our economy, for the countryside and for jobs. "
This is published on Maria Wetterstrand´s website. During the seminar, she explains further about her view on how companies should think about their environmental work in the long term.

The seminar will deal with the platform Industrial 4.0, which is a term for a common project for the industry, where human knowledge is central. The idea is that the human freedom of action in the industry needs to be extended.
Organizationally, Industrial 4.0 means a business paradigm shift. Product, production and service is to be integrated into the conversion process. The technology in Industry 4.0 revolves around intelligent products that are active carriers of information. Tele2 is a company that managed to adapt to this being in the forefront of M2M (Machine to Machine) and IoT (Internet of Things), which is part of Industry 4.0 and Rami Avidan´s excellences.

Catching Kairos: Building an unstoppable innovation factory
In the Greek mythology Kairos was the God of the opportune moment. You could catch him when he was heading towards you. But you could never catch him when he had passed. What does it take to spot those opportunities on time? Is it even possible? And what to do next, once you’ve started to grasp what’s going on? To answer these questions Trond will make 5 personal confessions, share five crucial C-words and introduce you to Skate or Die Management.

Plasma Spectroscopy - today's technologies for trace elements measurement
Since the mid 70's, plasmas have become increasingly popular as atomization and ironization sources for performing trace element determinations. The technology has grown, and all commercial laboratories where there is need for trace element analysis now have access, either inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometry (ICP-AES) or inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS). One says that about 600 instrument rings are scattered on the institutions and laboratories around Sweden.
Engineers have developed more and more towards multi-tasking, being able to measure many elements more or less simultaneously, while the detection limits has become increasingly low. The seminar will present techniques and applications are exemplified.

Easy compliance to international petrochemical norms using X-ray innovations
Environmental regulations are enforced using international testing norms requiring standardized and accurate analysis of e.g. sulfur containing compounds among many others. Elemental analysis innovations will be explained providing inside knowledge on how these analyses are being made easy and accurate. Examples including new sulfur, chlorine and broad international testing compliance will be given.
Dr. Jakob Noreland - XRF & XRD Regional Specialist PANalytical Sweden
Nanotechnology change our future : opportunities for us and for Sweden
"We are right now at the beginning of a technology revolution that will change the way we live in total and give us the tools to effectively cure cancer, get paralyzed to walk, allow ourselves to find out what risks we have to get certain diseases in the future. That is what I intend to talk about. And how Sweden can benefit from nanotechnology"
Maria Strømme, professor of nanotechnology at the Department of Engineering Sciences, Nanotechnology and Functional Materials at Uppsala University
Automation solutions for laboratories
As the demand for throughput and quality is growing while cost reduction is becoming increasingly important more and more efforts are spent on automation also in the laboratory environment. In this presentation we will go through different laboratory automation solutions from very small and compact to very big and extensive. The examples will be mainly for elemental analysis but the general concepts are applicable to most laboratories. We will also present examples of “lessons learned” and what other added values that can be gained from the data acquired by the automation control software and laboratory information management system (LIMS).
Dr. Julius Hållstedt - Business Manager, PANalytical Sweden
Innovation – that´s R&D´s responsibility, right?
Innovation is a word that has been used so frequently that it is starting to feel worn out. However, I will give my views on what it means, how it can be measured and how to do to increase the power of innovation in a business.
I will also share with you my own experience and example. My hope is to inspire you to start your journey to increase innovation in your business. It does not have to be so hard!

How can your industry sector benefit from the research supported by the MAX IV laboratory?
More than 1,000 researchers from all over the world come every year to MAX-lab in Lund and uses X-rays to look for answers to their scientific issues by making the invisible visible. In the same city a new facility has been built, MAX IV Laboratory, which will be the most brilliant X-ray source in the world when it was inaugurated the summer in 2016.
Tomas Lundqvist, responsible for Life Science and Industrial Contacts MAX IV, talks about the project and how academics and companies could benefit from the research which studies will be made possible by the new facility. Welcome to an interesting insight into the MAX IV Laboratory!
