COPA-DATA is uniting members of its Partner Community with an exclusive event aimed at stimulating ideas for the future of automation. The Northern European Partner Academy 2015 is a 2-day event held at the luxurious function rooms of Old Trafford Stadium, Manchester, on June 9 and 10, 2015.
All COPA-DATA partners from the UK and Scandinavia are welcome to attend the event free of charge, but limited seating will mean a definite sell out.
The first of the two information-packed days will comprise insights into the latest version of COPA-DATA’s HMI/SCADA software: zenon 7.20. Particular attention will be paid to its applications in energy management, efficiency in manufacturing and the food and beverage industry.
The initial day will also provide a platform for partners to take part in debates regarding the latest industry trends. There will be a focus on Industry 4.0, the Internet of Things and Big Data, as well as the chance to learn about how COPA-DATA’s offerings can help companies take advantage of the fourth industrial revolution.
Day 2 will be dedicated to two specialist workshops, running in parallel. One will focus on the standard for communication and systems for power utility automation – IEC 61850 – and the other on Big Data. Participants will have to make the difficult choice between learning about how IEC 61850 is revolutionising electrical grids and how zenon can be used to archive and analyse vast sets of information.
Martyn Williams, Managing Director of COPA-DATA UK, enthuses: “The Northern European Partner Academy is an excellent opportunity for existing and potential COPA-DATA partners to catch up on the latest industry insights and learn some technical tips first-hand from our expert team. On top of all this there’s the chance to network with representatives from some of the most cutting-edge companies in the UK and Scandinavia.”
Lisette Lillo Fagerstedt, Partner Programme Manager of COPA-DATA, explains: “Within the COPA-DATA Partner Community we focus on straight forward, exclusive and personal communication. By providing our partners with the latest products and industry insights, we assure the best possible support to our zenon customers. COPA-DATA’s local Partner Academies are also great complement to the Global Partner Academy that is held every second year.”
