Germany has launched “Industrie 4.0” – an ambitious initiative to transform German industry through digitalisation. What has happened so far? What are the challenges?
This seminar will start with an insider’s view of the Industrie 4.0 programme from Siemens, one of the companies involved.
The following discussion pinpoints opportunities for Sweden. What can Sweden learn from Industrie 4.0? What are the opportunities for Swedish companies? How can Swedish and German know-how contribute to the competitiveness of Europe?
The seminar is being organised by IVA’s Programme Council for European Issues and is part of a seminar series entitled “The Future Competitiveness of Europe – What is Sweden’s role?”
