08: The 4th Industrial Revolution – Reurbanisation of Production

-
Hauptschule
Breakout / Working Group
german language

The factory of the 21st century is no longer predicated on the exploitation of resources in low-cost locations, but on maximum digitisation and hypercomplexity in densely populated, highly industrialised cities. Production is returning to the city. What does that mean for people, society and the economy?
