Huge IDA-event shines a spotlight on sustainability

Sustainability in all its forms will be the central focus when IDA opens the doors to the technology event Technomania at hi Tech and Industry Scandinavia in Herning in October.

With the Technomania conference, we aim to offer in-depth and ambitious perspectives on how technology can support the development of sustainable industry and production. Key themes and fields include sustainable materials, modular product design, resource-efficient production, wave energy and vertical agriculture.

“We strive to cover all aspects of the concept of sustainability. Both when it comes to technology, but also, for example, in relation to the sustainable working life. The program consists of activities that are at once interesting to listen to and engaging to watch,” says Lene Christensen, Director of Technology, Network and Competence at IDA.

IDA's 3,500 square meter experience universe offers i.a. the world's first driverless electric truck “The Pod”, a drone demonstration the flying unmanned cranes of the future, as well as a demonstration of how to convert wave energy into clean water and electricity.

Technomania also gives room to the tech entrepreneurs of the future, which is why 500 square meters of the exhibition area in Hall F will be devoted to around 20 startups, each showcasing its innovative products and solutions.

In addition, Technomania offers a packed conference program with 32 talks. For example, you can hear Lars Seier talk about how blockchain will change the industry of the future, or learn about Google's ambition to become CO2-free by 2030. You can also listen as five experts debate how Denmark gets the most out of Power-to-X.

The talks tend to be popular, so make sure to sign up beforehand!

Technomania 2021 is run in collaboration with a number of partners and sponsors , who in addition to MCH, include the Manufacturing Industry in DI, Vækstfonden, DIRA - Danish Robot Network, Innovation Fund Denmark and MADE - Manufacturing Academy of Denmark, just to name a few.
