- Be able to grasp the main issues defining the concept of Industry 4.0
- Understand the challenges and opportunities for current and future businesses, as well as the respective possible roles of universities and governments
- Be able to consider scenarios and options for participating in this new industrial revolution, either by adapting to a new environment or by breaking new ground through entrepreneurship and scaling-up
