Innorobo - Paris, Shanghai, Berlin, Seoul, Singapore

Major French groups and international diversity on the agenda at the world’s premier summit on robotics innovations in Paris

For the sixth edition of the event, Innorobo 2016 successfully premiered in Paris, once again helping to accelerating the development of robotics innovations to benefit humankind. Beyond the figures and the event, Innorobo brings to life the community of players driving the robotics transformation and opens it up to major groups from France and around the world.

See you at Innorobo 2017 from 16 to 18 May in Paris!

The sixth edition of Innorobo was held at Docks de Paris from 24 to 26 May 2016. Some 200 exhibitors from 21 countries interacted with more than 10,000 visitors of 57 nationalities. As well, the Inside 3D Printing exhibition and conferences made their first appearance in France.

More than 400 leading personalities in the worldwide robotics sector – speakers, international experts, managers of firms that design or use robotics technologies, clusters, institutions, researchers, investors and many others –came together to connect with a vast business ecosystem and build trade relations and partnerships.

Innorobo’s international renown has gained momentum thanks to the event’s clear focus on robotics innovations and emerging trends that sets it apart from events dedicated to a specific application (e.g. industrial production, additive manufacturing, logistics, etc.). Innorobo helps innovations get to their market faster and fosters growth through cross-sector innovation and development of new markets. The event shines the spotlight on a booming, enthusiastic ecosystem that is a breath of fresh air amidst today’s pessimistic economic climate.

Towards “Human Robotics” with major partners

The robotics transformation is a global phenomenon and Innoecho’s international agreements with robotics federations in Japan (JARA), South Korea (KAR), Singapore (SIAA), Russia (Skolkovo), China (CRIA) and France (GDR Robotique) enable the Innorobo event to explore the social impact of this “general purpose technology” and envision, along with key technological and innovation players in the field, a human – or even humanistic – approach to the way our society will change in the next 10 to 20 years through these disruptive technologies. Yet, it is also a time for highly influential corporations to take concrete action. Innorobo 2016 hails the participation of major groups that wanted to be partners to the summit, including BNP Paribas Cardif, Huawei, NVIDIA and Paris Aéroports. They are playing an active role in today’s robotics transformation and contributing to our fast-changing world. A big thank you to all Innorobo partners:

Leading groups from around the world on hand at the robotics forum

Beyond the way they will shake up business models, economics and commercial opportunities, robotics technologies also provide solutions for major cross-border social challenges around the globe. Innorobo thus strives to bring experts and visionaries to host and speak at its conferences, invites its audience to take part in workshops on they way these technological advances will potentially change our world and creates opportunities for “water cooler” conversations, which are ideal for fostering collaboration and discussions with a longer-term vision.

Moving to Paris helped bring on many large groups from France (Total, Bouygues, Areva, Airbus, Orange, Dassault Systèmes, Air Liquide, EDF, PSA, Thales, Safran and others) and around the world (Microsoft, Accenture, Xerox, General Electric, Deutsche Telekom and others) at the strategy and innovation division level, said Catherine Simon, CEO of Innoecho and founder of the Innorobo exhibition. They got a first-hand look at the reality of robotics in the field, and I hope this will help the innovations presented by robotics entrepreneurs and start-ups to reach their markets faster, to enable these new technologies to serve Humankind.

Regional governments and robotics clusters help French robotics shine worldwide

France’s most active clusters and regional governments helped French robotics shine around the globe. The Hauts-de-France pavilion, with special guests Mr. Xavier Bertrand, President of the Region, and Ms. Frédérique Macarez, Mayor of Saint-Quentin, presented the dynamic, comprehensive regional ecosystem built over the past several years, “la Robonumérique” (“Robotics and Digital Technology”), which brings together researchers, educators, robotics manufacturers, integrators and customers. A framework agreement was signed with Orange during the French Mayor’s Conference the week following Innorobo. The Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region, with its Coboteam cluster, signed a cooperation agreement with one of South Korea’s most dynamic regions for robotics, Daegu, which brought a delegation of over 30 major Korean companies to Innorobo 2016 in order to build international collaborative ventures. The Aquitaine-Limousin-Poitou-Charentes, Languedoc-Roussillon-Midi-Pyrénées and Pays de la Loire regions greatly contributed to France’s impact by demonstrating robots in the country’s fields of excellence, including drones, autonomous vehicles and medical robotics.

DESIGN FOR 3D PRINTING: MAKING THINGS DIFFERENT
Bernat Cuni, Founder, cunicode
Cunicode is a design studio and brand of co-designed products, digitally fabricated. Founded in early 2011 to explore the business opportunities of Additive Manufacturing through design. Cunicode researches the new aesthetics of additive manufacturing, explores business opportunities for the maker economy, makes design tools for everyone and makes and sells products using the digital fabrication ecosystem.
DIALOG ON FOOD 3D PRINTING AND DESIGN
Christina Zheng, Business Director & Chief Executive Officer at Choc Edge Ltd
Choc Edge started as a research project at the University of Exeter, the aim was to create a 3D printer that could produce objects in a material that hadn’t been used for 3D printing before. As chocolate is universally loved it was decided it would be the perfect material to appeal to existing 3D printing enthusiasts and engage people who would normally not be interested in the technology. We believe this new technology will not only empower users to take chocolate creation to new levels but ultimately enhance the overall chocolate consumption experience for the end user.

Inside 3D Printing Conference : discover the keynote speeches

This year marks the first time Inside 3D Printing has held an event in Paris, and the conference will take place from May 24-26 at Les Docks de Paris.
This year’s conference is going to focus on awide variety of 3D printing and additive manufacturing applications in the fields of medicine and surgery, the toy industry, aerospace, food, manufacturing and more.

Session topics will include:

3D PRINTING WILL ROCK THE WORLD
Speaking from his popular new book, “3D Printing Will Rock the World,” which has been called a “must-read” offering “rare insight into how 3D printing is redefining what can be designed and manufactured,” industry thought leader John Hornick takes an insightful look into the world of 3D printing and its potential future impact on business and personal life, manufacturing, the law and crime, and, basically, life as we know it. John explains where this disruptive technology stands today and where it is going, and how everything will change when you can make anything.
NOVEL MATERIALS: PRODUCTION, PROCESSING & PERFORMANCE
Plastics and metals are the dominant materials in the current 3D printing field. This talk by Michael Petch will look at lesser publicized materials and related processes. Specifically, ceramics, graphene (and other nano-materials), hydro & aerogels in the context of 3D printing. The current academic research, commercial applications (and relevant patents), production of materials and the possible future developments will be reviewed with reference to independent research conducted for this presentation.
3D PRINTING, INTERNATIONAL TRENDS AND MARKETS
The world seems now to know all about 3D Printing. Articles in popular media are appearing everywhere, extolling the virtues of this wondrous technological ‘revolution’. What the media seems not to realize is that 3D Printing has been benefiting manufacturers and product developers for over 2 decades. For many years, people have been slowly evolving Rapid Prototyping technology into the marvel that we have today. This presentation will provide an industry overview and explore the latest trends impacting global markets and consider how they may further revolutionize the future of manufacturing.
3D PRINTING SURGICAL IMPLANTS
Docteur Achala Del Mel will cover surgical implants/artificial organs of interest along with materials considerations and smart materials. Cellular integration including printing a ‘living’ implant and 3D printing challenges related to instrumentation and software are all part of the discussion.
CONSUMER SEGMENT IN 3D PRINTING
While 3D printing is growing at exponential speed in various applications across the spectrum, the consumer segment is quaintly rising up and is poised to climb the pole position in a few years time. The penetration of basic printers in schools followed by home ready 3D printers will shift the power to the consumer. The talk would focus on the rise of the consumer segment over the past and the factors that are playing out to make this the dominant segment. A meta analysis thoroughly researched data from various tech analysts across should be able to tell us what lies inside the proverbial crystal ball.
APPLICATION OF 3D FDM PRINTING MATERIAL
Yang Yihu is President and Chief Executive Officer of ESUN, the leader in PLA and 3D printing material. This highly informative session focuses on the opportunities and challenges related to FDM3D material. Join us as we analyze the reasons behind the rapidly growing popularity of FDM3D, point out the main problems, and explore one standard for FDM3D material. We’ll also provide examples of the PLA and PVA modification process in 3D printing. Finally, we’ll summarize the status of Esun filament as it applies to the overall market and maker community.
