Digital Transformation of Europe’s industry and enterprises

Dinner Debate


"Industrie 4.0", "Usine du Future", "Smart Industry", "High Value Manufacturing" and "Fabbrica Intelligente" are just a few of the 20 initiatives that exist around Europe to use advanced ICT to transform Europe's industrial heritage and future.

If correctly implemented, this fourth revolution holds huge potential for European businesses and consumers.  However, there is a risk that all these national initiatives are fragmented and therefore the potential will not be fully exploited. How can the European level play a role in coordinating and advancing the "Digital Transformation of Industry"? What are the real benefits for European businesses and consumers? These are the questions that Members of the European Internet Forum would like to address during this Dinner Debate.
