In the face of challenges such as digital transformation and inclusive growth, the workshop aims to exchange knowledge by presenting the results obtained at regional level in the framework of the BEYOND4.0 project (H2020), and to gather recommendations for policy-making.
BEYOND4.0 project, "Inclusive Futures for Europe beyond the impacts of Industry 4.0 and Digital Disruption”, aims to provide a new understanding of the economic impact of the digital transformation on regions. It assesses how digital transformations will impact regional ecosystems, economies and societies, now and in the future. Regions selected for analysis include: Salo, Oulu (Finland), Brainport Eindhoven (Netherlands), Sofia (Bulgaria), West-Midlands (United Kingdom), Rhine-Ruhr (Germany) and the Basque Country (Spain).
During the session representatives of the BEYOND4.0 research team will share the results and policy recommendations obtained in the course of the project. Participants will also be engaged throughout the session through the use of virtual interaction platforms. The aim of this interaction is to compare the preliminary results of our research. To this end, prior to the workshop, a communication campaign will be carried out on social networks. In addition, a brief dossier will be sent before the activity. In this way, participants will be able to reflect their opinions and generate a discussion between the moderator, speakers and those attending the event.
