Monitoring the uptake of Advanced Technologies for effective Industry 4.0 policies

April 21, 2021 @ 10:00 am – 12:30 pm Europe/Zurich Timezone

Advanced technologies are currently fueling the so-called “fourth industrial revolution”, with the potential of transforming EU industries and creating enormous growth of the European economy. In response to the challenges related to this continuous transformation, most of the EU governments have made Industry 4.0 a priority adopting large-scale policies to increase productivity and competitiveness and improve the hightech skills of their workforce.

In this context, the Advanced Technologies for Industry (ATI) project provides a systematic monitoring of technological trends and data on advanced technologies to properly support the implementation of policies and initiatives and finally promote a competitive European industry.

This Make it work event has two main objectives:

  • to present some interesting tools monitoring advanced technologies’ trends and developments such us the Data dashboard and Technology Watch reports on AI and IoT which can represent a valuable source of information when planning and implementing I4.0 policies at national level;
  • to discuss how to better monitor technology uptake across EU sectors giving voice to Industry 4.0 platforms and to share and exchange experiences in order to benefit from ATI in a practical way, for example through the definition of joint projects or the formulation of questions to policy makers.

The event is addressed primarily to Industry 4.0 platforms, but all interested stakeholders are welcome to join.
