A Seminar in the Digitalisation of Industry Series, by Chalmers Production Area of Advance

Digitalisation of industry is the most profound change of global society since steam engines and electrical motors entered our workplaces. Industry 4.0 is a concept invented in Germany in 2011. Now it is spreading to the rest of the world and Swedish industry is in the forefront. But what will future industries and jobs look like? Are occupations disappearing or just changing? Can Sweden keep up with the global digitalisation and competition?

Chalmers Production Area of Advance has invited leading international experts to give us glimpses of the digitalised future and ideas on how to plan for work in Industry 4.0.

Date: 8 May
Time: 12:00 – 19:00
Location: Lindholmen Conference Center
