Nemzeti Technológiai Platform

About us

The Industry 4.0 National Technology Platform was established under the leadership of the Institute for Computer Science and Control (SZTAKI), Hungarian Academy of Sciences, with the participation of research institutions, companies, universities and professional organizations having premises in Hungary, and with the full support and commitment of the Government of Hungary, and specifically that of the Ministry of National Economy.

The background of the initiative is that Hungary, too, is witnessing the advent of the era of a new technological change, when the internet based economy is transforming the very basics of the production and logistic systems. The theoretical and practical problems to be resolved are of such complexity that make the cooperation between the research and university spheres on the one hand and industrial companies on the other hand indispensable, both in the national and the international arena.

Due to its success, the Beckhoff Technology Day conference will be organized for the third time. This event is a unique opportunity to get informed about the current trends of automation technology, get insight of Beckhoff's latest technological innovations and products, and the solutions based on these.
The concept of Industry 4.0 is the convergence of automation and infomation technology, therefore the IoT, a highly interesting and hot topic, will be discussed from a different perspective in the presentation of the representative of Microsoft Hungary.

This is to announce that an extraordinarry Members' Assembly will take place on the 10th October, 2017 at 3 pm following the MTA SZTAKI INDIGO Industrial Digitisation Day. The Presidium will advise soon the Members' representatives about the invitation and the way of regsitration.

The Balluff-Elektronika Kft as member of the I4.0 NTP Ipar 4.0 Cyber-Physical Pilot Systems Working Group offers a free training programme to all members oft the NTP. The main topic is industrial automatisation on the basis of  IO-Link communication system development and implementation. Innovative solutions containing decentralised I/O units  on the one hand and distributed modular IO-Link based systems on the other hand will demonstrate the capabilities of these methodology.

Date of the training is 25 September, 2017.

Working groups

The Hungarian Industry 4.0 National Technological Platform operates several Work Groups in order to fulfil its mission defined in its Organisational and Operational Regulations. Their activity focusses on specific issues related to I4.0 and they formulate answers and recommendations to the challenges presented by the practice.

The participants of the Work Groups are delegated by their own organisation, members of the Platform and they represent special expertise in the given area. They work closely together with the corresponding governmental forums and bodies thus contributing directly to the formation and implementation of the Government’s strategic goals.
