The fourth Industrial Revolution was a main theme at this year’s World Economic Forum in Davos and the topic has reached worldwide attention.
Digitising European Industry is a major topic in Europe and part of the “Digital Agenda for Europe”. Other countries use different terms for the future of manufacturing that just has started.
Presentations in this WS will focus on experience and real application of methods that can be summarised under the term of the Industry4.0 and discuss questions like:
What will be the role of robotics in the era of Digitalization?
Who is pulling, who is pushing and who will survive the fourth industrial revolution?
And what does that mean for European SMEs in manufacturing?
