Key Themes of Industrie 4.0 (Second Revised Edition)
Industry 4.0 is increasingly becoming a key factor in securing and further developing value creation in Germany. In addition, it can play a pivotal part in overcoming the socio-political challenges of our time. The second revised edition of “Key themes of Industrie 4.0” from the Research Council of Plattform Industrie 4.0 updates the key themes and comes up with areas in which research and development are needed. In keeping with Plattform Industrie 4.0’s “2030 Vision”, the update ties in with objectives such as sustainability and technological sovereignty. To achieve these, a joint effort is required from stakeholders from industry, science, politics and society.
