FROM 4.O TO INDUSTRIAL RENAISSANCE THE NEXT STEPS FOR A POST COVID ERA
MITC recommends this digital event
The innovation event of the year
We are living a global pandemic crisis whose unprecedented effects will be prolonged over time. The emergency response of the States and the resilience of critical infrastructures kept economies and societies afloat, albeit with partial or total interruption of global supply chains, instantaneous and simultaneous interruption of supply and demand, as well as the weakening of Globalization. Lockdown measures generated complex social patterns, regional crisis asymmetries and the rapid adaptation of institutions, companies and consumers to new conditions.
The global deflation is ongoing and thus the economic restart, but the uncertainty about the duration of the process will influence the confidence levels of consumers, entrepreneurs and investors. This digital conference, oriented towards an audience of business leaders, policy-makers, academics and students, will anticipate and debate the possibility of the yet vague concept of Europe’s “Industrial Renaissance”, converging strategies of backshoring, 4.0 technologies and innovation. “Industrial Renaissance” can be broadly defined as a process of accelerated change, propelled by geopolitics and globalization, technologies from the 4th industrial revolution, ambitious political goals of ecological transition, having the industrial sector as the essential core in a competitive and sustainable economy. The effects of Europe's Industrial Renaissance process transcend the sectors of the manufacturing industry, which are undergoing profound transformation, and extend across the economy and society.
