The activities of Manufacturing Innovation Valley and the Cluster of Manufacturing Innovators, as well as successful projects of Lithuanian companies were presented at the EIT Manufacturing Summit 2021. This year’s event focused on the Future of Manufacturing Work. EIT Manufacturing was established in 2019 with the vision that global manufacturing will continue to be led by Europe. The initiative therefore brings together all industry players: large and small companies, startups, academic and research institutions.
Gintaras Vilda, CEO of Manufacturing Innovation Valley, presented the experience of Lithuanian industry in the context of EIT Manufacturing. He spoke about the projects successfully delivered by Lithuanian Engineering Industry and Technology Association LINPRA and VšĮ Intechcentras, the Interino LT initiative of the Lithuanian Confederation of Industrialists, and UAB BaltLed. In his speech, Mr Vilda pointed out that the Manufacturing Innovation Valley was another Lithuanian business initiative aimed at bringing together the most innovative manufacturers to combine their efforts towards the same goals, while enhancing the leadership of European industry.
Daiva Urbanavičienė, CEO of UAB Aerodiagnostika, a member of the Cluster of Manufacturing Innovators, also shared her insights at the event. She is an independent member of the EIT Manufacturing supervisory board. Ms. Urbanavičienė spoke about her company’s experience in the field of data analytics and the company’s development of an artificial intelligence-based data processing system with financial support from the European Union. „The use of the drones we have developed and manufactured has created the need for specialised systems to process the huge amounts of visual data we have received. The EU funding programmes have enabled us and our customer to create a unique technology that we continue to develop,“ said Ms. Urbanavičienė.
