Business opportunities in Germany for robot and automation industries

Business Finland has recognized that there is a big annual market for robot and automation solutions in Europe. There is a scope for Finnish solutions to make an impact. Germany, for example, has a very large but at the same time challenging market. Business Finland aims to support Finnish solutions and systems providers around robotics and automation to enter the German market.

Two day kick-off in Finland

This first robotics and automation workshop to be held during March 2020 at Team Finland House in Helsinki will bring together those Finnish companies operating in this field, especially around systems and solutions of all kinds. Germany will be the focus country of this first event and – apart from the Finnish companies – several stakeholders from Germany will attend and give insight into the local market, prerequisites for success in Germany and examples of current projects.
