Webinar “Industry4.0: Inputs, Outputs and Start-ups”, 5th October 2017

During the latest THA webinar  Industry4.0:Inputs, Outputs and Start-ups delivered on 5th October 2017, by Caroline Paunov, Senior Economist and Head of Secretariat for the OECD Working Party on Innovation and Technology Policy (TIP) at the Directorate for Science, Technology, and Innovation of the OECD  and José Saenz Senior Research Scientist  at the Fraunhofer Institute for Factory Operation and Automation, we have discussed the impact of the digital revolution over our society with a focus on  public research institutions and their innovation performance and  discussed which new policy instruments and mix would be needed to maximize the benefits and reduce the risks of the fourth industrial revolution.

We observed via the case of Fraunhofer, how the robotics sector  could benefit from the big data and digitalization and which legal, cultural, operational and regulatory barriers  should be removed for taking full advantage of the digital revolution in such promising research field.
