The Future of Engineering – The 4th industrial revolution
A presentation by David Pap

At 10 am CET on Thursday, 12 November 2020 Alumni Hungary will continue the Alumni Hungary Webinar Series in which world-famous Hungarian scientists, artists and professionals give inspiring presentations about their latest research and innovations.

This time our presenter will be Mr David Pap, Chief Executive Officer and founder of FabLab Budapest. Mr Pap is a digital fabrication expert and associate professor at the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design. His areas of specialty are the overlaps of technology, cultural and creative industries. He believes in bottom-up innovation and helps others to shape their ideas into real prototypes.

Founded in 2011, FabLab Budapest is part of an international open innovation network with more than 1,800 members, presented in over 100 countries.  The network aims to democratize access to digital manufacturing technologies and related knowledge. The technologies they use were previously only available for the industry, so they place great emphasis on nurturing talent, sharing our expertise with infrastructure.

The webinar covers the current state and vision for the future of engineering. From a technology point of view we will focus on computational design, additive manufacturing, material engineering, and synthetic biology, when the future of product design and engineering looks like as we move from the assembly age to the biodigital age.

Mr Pap will discuss how knowledge sharing and the 4th industrial revolution can help us to address a range of environmental, social, and economic objectives. Can we reduce carbon emissions, minimize waste with the help of advanced manufacturing technologies and a system-based approach? In this webinar, we are looking for answers on how we can harness new technology and what role open innovation workshops and ecosystems play in this process.

The presentation will be broadcasted on Zoom on Thursday, 12 November 2020 between 10:00 and 11:00 am (CET). After the presentation, we will have a 30 min. live Q&A session, where Mr Pap will answer your questions.
