CEPS, in cooperation with the H2020 Project MAKERS, invites you to a Policy Workshop on Industry 4.0 and its implications for an EU industrial policy.


EU economies are being transformed by the emergence of ‘new manufacturing model’ driven by a wave of technological changes: the pervasive diffusion of digital technology; new business models & servitisation; new forms of demand & access; and a sustainable innovation agenda.

Recent debate has started to unpack this ‘production organisation revolution’ and it is now timely to understand what form the new manufacturing model will take in Europe, how it can contribute to economic development, and what policies are needed to enable to develop and anchor manufacturing activities in relatively high-cost economies in the EU.

Policy makers, academics, unions and business experts from across the EU will share their perspectives on new or smart manufacturing, Industry 4.0, the fourth industrial revolution and implications for policy.

Please let David Bailey know if you want to present policy findings from your contribution to MAKERS.
