Promoted by the Portuguese Footwear, Components, Leather Goods Manufacturers' Association (APICCAPS) and by the Portuguese Footwear Technological Footwear Centre (CTCP), this initiative was specially designed to discuss future trends in the footwear market. In this edition, INESC TEC had the opportunity to showcase the results of two projects in which it collaborates, FASCOM and BEinCPPS as well as to make two thematic presentations called " Customer-Responsive Supply Chain augmented with Shopper Marketing: a footwear fashion retail case" and " Business experiments in footwear Cyber-Physical Production Systems”.
The FASCOM project intends to obtain a quick response to the trends and preferences of the consumers on fashion products through the analysis of the interaction and sensing of stores and the development of new materials, footwear and technologies. On the other hand, BEinCPPS pretends to drastically improve the adoption of cyber-physical production systems all around Europe, creating and promoting regional innovation ecosystems driven by cyber-physical systems comprised of competence centres, production companies and SMEs.
The congress gathered around 500 professionals from 33 different countries.
