7th German-Brazilian Dialogue on Science, Research and Innovation


October 30–31, 2018 – FAPESP


The German-Brazilian Dialogue 2018 aims to discuss new technologies and processes at companies level and at different businesses regarding robots and human-robot collaboration, artificial intelligence and interactive systems.

This event also discusses the skills needed in the near future for these transformations on work, focusing on student-centered approaches, apprenticeship in learning factories, maker movement, Fab Labs, vocational education and others.

Following the idea that the relationship between technology and work is to be understood as a political and corporate strategy design project, this event addresses the challenge of how to extend and use the opportunities in order to develop skills
at all segments of society.

Event free of charge | Limited seats | Simultaneous translation will be available| Parking is not available
