Date and time
Thursday, 25th January 2018, 10:00-16:00, CEPS Conference Room, 1 Place du Congrès, 1000 Brussels
CEPS, in cooperation with the H2020 Project MAKERS, and the RSA’s MAKERS of value Research Network invites you to a Policy Workshop on Industry 4.0 and its implications for an EU industrial policy.
EU economies are being transformed by the emergence of ‘new manufacturing model’ driven by a wave of technological changes: the pervasive diffusion of digital technology; new business models & servitisation; new forms of demand & access; and a sustainable innovation agenda. Recent debate has started to unpack this ‘production organisation revolution’ and it is now timely to understand what form the new manufacturing model will take in Europe, how it can contribute to economic development, and what policies are needed to enable to develop and anchor manufacturing activities in relatively high-cost economies in the EU.
Policy makers, academics, unions and business experts from across the EU will share their perspectives on Industry 4.0, the fourth industrial revolution and implications for policy.
The event is free of charge.
