Plattform Industrie 4.0

Digitization creates opportunities and challenges for the industrial sector in Germany. More flexibility, individualization and efficiency are driving forces of German businesses in the context of digitization.
New forms of “digital economy and digital labour” offer great economic potential but demand simultaneously for innovative solutions regarding possible challenges in the implementation process.
The “Digitalplattform Industrie 4.0” which has been initiated by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) aims to enable a target-oriented dialogue concerning Industrie 4.0 among actors from the political, economic and scientific sector as well as the associations. Relevant topics will be identified, societal effects analysed and a necessary framework for the implantation will be created jointly.
IFOK, together with VDI Technolgiezentrum GmBH, is in charge of the secretariat of Plattform Industrie 4.0 on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy. Additionally, to the organization and implementation of thematic working groups, IFOK is in charge of communication, events and provide contact persons in the context of Industrie 4.0.
