Danube Adria Association For Automation & Manufacturing – DAAAM

DAAAM International Vienna is an international network for scientific, academic and industrial cooperation. DAAAM International was founded and based on the idea and initiative of Professor B. Katalinic, on November 5th, 1990 at the Vienna Symposium, in order to mark the 175th anniversary of the Vienna University of Technology. The purpose of DAAAM International is to provide a world forum for engineers, scientists and industrial managers to present and discuss the current status and impact of advanced manufacturing and automation. During the last 33 years, the activities of DAAAM International have been supported by more than 10.000 scientists and experts from over fifty countries all over the world.

In recent years, DAAAM International has focused activities on regional and global long-term co-operation between (technical) universities. The result of this initiative is the founding of the University Network of DAAAM International Vienna and DAAAM International Network for Advanced Technologies. The founding document of the University Network of DAAAM International Vienna is the University Charter of Dubrovnik, signed on October 23rd 1997 in Dubrovnik, Croatia. The founding document of DAAAM International Network for Advanced Technologies is signed on 2002-10-25 in Vienna.
