  • Show how digital skills become crucial
  • Indicate concrete applications in industries where transformation is already having full impact

In the first part of the workshop we provided all the expected knowledge and illustrated a series of practical use cases in industries similar to those of the participating companies. We also presented a live Internet of Things demo created for the occasion, with sensors in the field and data analysis and visualizationservices in the cloud. The aim was to stimulate the creative interaction of the participants and the feedback was very positive.

Participating companies and possible practical applications

The second part of the workshop was dedicated to questions and discussion of specific cases of interest.
About 15 managers participated representing 7 companies in different industries: e.g. chemicals, paper, textiles, utilities. The variety of industries respresented stimulated the discussion of requirements and made it possible to highlight the transversal nature of technologies, solutions and skills. Opportunities for cluster collaboration were identified, facilitated by the horizontal integration potential of 4.0 technologies.
