to develop additional

to develop additional web-based services and to pursue new business opportunities outside the boundaries of traditional industries. At Hannover, companies demonstrate how digitalization can create innovative and highly customized solutions more quickly than ever before. The biggest potential of digitalization lies in the development of completely new business models. Hannover Messe is increasingly turning into a platform for partnerships between IT companies and engineering firms, or between startups and major corporations; something which was previously unheard before. NEWS AND MARKETS Rise of the ‘Cobots’ Hannover Messe gives prime importance to collaborative robots or ‘Cobots’, as they are known. Cobots are designed to work alongside human workers, assisting them with a variety of tasks. The biggest advantage these Cobots provide is that they are as simple to operate, just like a smartphone. Moreover, they are affordable, selflearning and they can be placed in small-spaced assembly lines. They are highly adaptable and they are flexible to handle repetitive, boring and ergonomically challenging tasks. As time goes on, these Cobots are getting cleverer and cheaper to buy, making them a cost-effective gateway to the benefits of Industry 4.0, particularly for smaller companies. Much like drones today, cobots will eventually develop into a mass market that will give rise to a wealth of totally new business ideas. The Energy show: showcasing tomorrow’s energy system Digitalization is transforming the energy industry. The energy system of tomorrow will be fundamentally different from today’s system which is based on centralized power plants. Creating a futuristic energy system is not just about digitalizing all the individual components. It requires a highly co-ordinated effort involving all the key players and technologies from energy generation, storage and transmission to distribution. Under the banner ‘Integrated Energy’ at Hannover, leading companies from all over the industrialized world cover a wide spectrum of topics including integrated and smart grids, renewable energy, decentralized supply, energy storage, energy efficiency. With more than 1200 companies taking part in the Energy Show on a combined display area of 43,000 m 2 , Hannover Messe is about to shape the future of our energy systems. The Integrated Energy Plaza’s forum programs are organized by the German Energy Agency (dena) in partnership with a number of German industry associations, including the VDMA and ZVEI, offers the visitors a chance to learn more about the key issues affecting industry. Poland: the partner country at Hannover Messe 2017 For Germany and many other EU nations, Poland is an important international trade partner. Poland’s biggest trading partner is its neighbor, Germany. Machinery, automobiles and electronic equipment are amongst Poland’s strongest segments. In 2016, imports and exports generated total foreign trade of more than € 350 billion for Poland. Germany is responsible for 23 % of all Polish imports and 27 % of Poland’s exports. As the Partner Country at this year’s show, Poland wants to send a clear signal that the Polish government sees re-industrialization as one of its most important objectives. Hannover Messe 2017 will be officially inaugurated by German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Polish Prime Minister Beata Szydlo.
