08: Industry 4.0 – Impact on the Future of Working Lives

-
Hauptschule
Breakout / Working Group
english language

The fourth industrial revolution initiated by the Internet of Things offers a competitive advantage through increased efficiency of the producing industry. However, it also creates economic, social and organizational challenges. In this connection, changing demands in the world of work, greater product individualization and shifting factors of global influence are all playing a role. Accordingly, the working group will provide answers to questions such as: “What is industry 4.0?” “How will the world of work develop?” “What does this mean for labour, companies and regions?”
