In cooperation with
Digital transformation is a reality. How we communicate, our traffic systems, our leisure activities: The pace of change is rapid - also in industrial automation. 

Interaction is a crucial part of this transformation and will shape the way we work tomorrow: We are in permanent interaction with our colleagues, with computers, control systems and directly with machines. This Human-System Interaction is our focus of the “Beyond Safety. Forum@SICK” in 2022.   

The Forum is a platform for you. It brings together users and experts from industrial practice with researchers and safety visioners. Focus talks of invited speakers will foster our discussion for innovation beyond the well-known.  

The “Beyond Safety. Forum@SICK” is the successor of the Forum Functional Safety@SICK, which in the past year’s was organized SICK internally. On 11th October 2022, the Forum will, for the first time, start with a public day and invited speakers. On this day we want to discuss opportunities and challenges and emerging topics within industrial automation and safety. You can attend the event either at SICK’s new SIA Campus in Waldkirch-Buchholz or virtually by Webex.
