2nd Annual QED Conference on Industry 4.0 Digitalisation and Big Data: unlocking the potential for economic growth

Industry, Enterprise and Innovation
Date: Wednesday, 31 January 2018 14:00 - 17:00

Venue: Renaissance Hotel  |  City: Bruxelles, Belgium

The new industrial revolution is driven by a new generation of information technologies like big data and data analytics, cloud computing, artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things (IoT).

By mobilising the intelligence of big data and digital platforms, European industries can boost productivity and performance, increase profitability and pave the way for innovation.

Among several initiatives like the “Digitising European Industry” policy package including the “European Cloud Initiative”, could the proposal for a regulation on a framework for the free flow of non-personal data in the European Union help to unlock the potential to create a competitive European Data Economy?

What are the challenges that could prevent the European Industry from reaping the full benefits of the digital transformation? How do we create the framework conditions for the digital industrial revolution?

Possible discussion points:

  • How do we optimise the generation and the handling of data and data analysis?
  • What are the obstacles to access to data and data flow? Is the main challenge data localisation?
  • What are the key backbones of the Industry 4.0 digital technologies?
  • What is the best route to secure interoperability?
  • How do we spur networking and collaboration across both vertical and horizontal sectors?
  • Is security the big issue?
