This Thematic Seminar on Industry 4.0 aims to raise awareness and foster exchange of information and best practice between the European Commission and the EU regions as well as among the regions themselves. The participants will be updated on the state-of-play on Industry 4.0 policy developments. Experts in Industry 4.0, local and regional authorities and EU policy-makers will be brought together to discuss on R&I policy developments and optimising the coordination of different funding programmes and schemes to advance R&I on local and regional level. At the same time, the European Commission aims to gather information on the regions' R&I needs and on obstacles which may be hindering them from investing in Industry 4.0.
The Knowledge Exchange Platform (KEP) is a concept jointly developed by the European Committee of the Regions and DG Research and Innovation of the European Commission. It is aimed at presenting new R&I solutions, innovative products and best practices in response to societal challenges facing the regions and cities of Europe. In 2019, the KEP will address the themes of Industry 4.0 and Social Innovation.
Registrations will close on 26 June.
Interpretation will be provided in English, French and Italian. Webstreaming will also be provided.
