      The New Industrial Revolution for Europe

      Industry 4.0 is the combination of new technologies and organization of labor to push manufacturing into a new realm of optimization. It is a trend that focuses on creating smart factories through innovative communication and design between machines and humans. As a leader in high-tech manufacturing, Europe is well placed to promote this transition to Industry 4.0. The European Commission is actively involved in outlining areas of cooperation and investment in this transition. However there still a lot of potential that is not exploited. As the economy continues to digitalize, it is important that firms transform to integrate the digital world into their functioning. Through the support of the European Union (EU), the adoption and adaptation of new industry should benefit all citizens and provide a more sustainable and optimized model for economic growth.

      At the forefront of this issue is the ability to adopt new key enabling technologies. These technologies are often pioneered by start-ups headquartered in different parts of Europe, making wider adoption and faster innovation more difficult for some sectors of industry….
