RSf2021 key topics

The industrial automation growth

2021 has seen robot density at record highs. Technologies such as automated warehouses, AVGs, cobots and drones are paving their way into more and more factories globally. What are the hottest trends in robotics and what is Bulgaria’s role on the global robotics scene.

Smart grid, battery, and energy storage growth

European Commission approved 3.2 billion for research and innovation in battery technology. Batteries are rendered as a key enabling technology. Battery plant investments are growing in the CEE and the region is seen by some analysts as a key component of the EU’s battery production capabilities.

The global chip shortage

The global chip shortage is affecting a number of industries from automotive, electronics to turbines and solar. When can we expect the see supply bottleneck to moderate or normalize. Can Bulgaria and CEE advance in the field of semiconductor design and fabrication.

innovations in robotics

2021 has been a year of increased investment in machinery and automation for the Bulgarian industry. Which will be the core drivers behind automation in the Bulgarian factories and can we implement additional tools, programs and campaigns which will empower the modernization of the Bulgarian industry.
