INDUSTRIE 4.0 - Opportunities and Challenges
by Bagryan Malamin | 23.06.2020

Industrie 4.0 and the  platform  economy - the first represents the digitalisation of production, epitomised by Industrie4.0. The second involves the digitalisation of work, sometimes referred to as ‘Uberisation’. Both are examined by BEYOND4.0 and both offer opportunities and challenges.

The project's second Policy Brief focuses on the first development – Industrie4.0 in the context of the 4th Industrial Revolution. It highlights some of the findings from past and emerging research, then outlines current policy thinking about the opportunities and  challenges before making recommendations for further evidence-based policy development.

The second policy brief is here.
