On the 24th of April, MEP and EIF Chair Pilar del Castillo hosted an EIF debate on The Impact of the Internet of Things on European Industries. She welcomed participants with the reminder that Europe is a global manufacturing leader, and that 80% of Europe’s exports are manufactured goods. We must therefore become leaders in the digital transformation of our manufacturing base – which is to say front-runners in the data economy.
In this #EIFAsks video we asked Pilar del Castillo MEP and EIF Chair, Director for the Future Networks Directorate Pearse O'Donohue, Justin Hobbs from Zebra Technologies and Thomas Walloschke from the Alliance for the Internet of Things Innovation: what role does EU Policy have to play in industry-wide digital transformation across our continent? And how are we progressing?
