In collaboration with:


The Simulation and Design 4.0 Square is an area of excellence dedicated to Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) and to digital product development, more generally to promotion of methodologies and tools belonging to Industry 4.0 and the Smart Factory.

With the advent of new manufacturing technologies and increasing market competitiveness, CAE design software has become an indispensable tool for business competitiveness and for the success of new products.

The Simulation and Design 4.0 Square promotes digitalisation of product development processes through seminars and popular workshops, technical insights, presentations and product demonstrations. Successful cases and company testimonials complete the area’s contributions and facilitate comparison between technicians and operators in the sector.


The Square will be animated by seminars and thematic speech sessions:

  • Digital Product Development
  • 3D Design and Virtual Reality
  • CAE Simulation (FEM, CFD, DEM, …) and Virtual Prototyping
  • Augmented reality
  • Design for Additive Manufacturing
  • Optimisation
  • Structural simulation
  • Process simulation
  • Multiphysics simulation
  • System based simulation
  • Training

The reference sectors are::

  • Automotive
