    Construyes! 2020 Live - LA (R)EVOLUCIÓN TECNOLÓGICA DEL SECTOR DE LA CONSTRUCCIÓN: Conectar para innovar - PTEC (LIVE STREAMING)

    The machinery manufacturing sector is immersed in a fourth industrial revolution, also known as Industry 4.0, which pursues the digital transformation of the industry through the connection of the physical world with the digital world. The construction sector, one of the least advanced today in terms of digitization compared to other sectors, has also decided to tackle this digital revolution. The so-called Construction 4.0, by its analogy with the fourth industrial revolution, seeks to improve the productivity of the sector through the industrialization of construction processes and the incorporation of emerging technologies. In this context, machinery will play a leading role in the digital revolution that the sector expects. In the midst of this technological revolution, ConstruYes! is born, an annual event promoted and organized by ANMOPYC (Spanish Association of Manufacturers of Construction Machinery, Public Works and Mining), ITAINNOVA (Technological Institute of Aragon) and PTEC (Spanish Technological Platform for Construction). https://construyes.technology/
