  • 12.30-13.30 PANEL DISCUSSION: Industrial Policy and Development in the Advent of the Fourth Industrial Revolution

    The advent of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, being ‘organic’ in nature, was not the result of a conscious strategy or industrial policy, allowing the private sector to move ahead with little or no government involvement. With a changing and increasingly diverse landscape, this has shifted to greater government involvement, both in already industrialised economies, but also in developing nations, where adoption is still in its infancy. This panel will discuss the role of industrial policy in the advent of 4IR and role of new technologies, with special emphasis given to developing countries and looking at how the intelligent crafting of industrial policy is becoming a crucial activity for governments.

  • 10.30-11.30 PANEL DISCUSSION: The Circular Economy for Manufacturing: At a Crossroads

    Global resource scarcity has moved beyond being a concern just for environmentalists to becoming a key agenda item for businesses and governments. Creating a viable circular economy, inspired by living systems and designed to recover and reuse products and materials, developing product design with future material recovery in mind puts manufacturing at a new threshold – and requires a new mind-set. This panel will look at how moving from ‘take, make, dispose’ to ‘make, remake, reuse’ can, and is moving from theory to practice. Despite the seemingly straightforward logic, the challenge remains significant to rethink and implement circular design in the manufacturing process. Opinion will also be given on legislation and certification and the viability of new quality standards.

  • 12.00-13.30 SPECIAL MULTI-PLATFORM SESSION: Best Available Technologies and Digitalisation: Best Practice Cases of Environmental and Economic Efficiency Increase

    Digital transformation and green technologies are advancing rapidly in the productive sector. Digitisation helps optimise processes in a way that improves productivity, competitiveness and innovation. In addition, green technologies offer great potential for industrial environmental protection, contributing to the reduction of CO2 emissions, environmental pollution and the conservation of non-renewable resources. At the core of the optimization lies access to real-time information of industrial processes anywhere and anytime. There are various digitization measures that can reduce the negative environmental impact of industrial activities. Some examples of measures that are frequently implemented by companies are predictive maintenance of machines, monitoring of operating conditions, continuous data integration and measures for support and assistance of workers.
    Digitisation measures and green technologies which are frequently used by industries worldwide and their technological applicability, advantage and economic feasibility are widely proven. They also allow companies to assess the potential of different measures at an early stage in their digitization process, so that it can be trapped most cost-effectively.
    The unique link between digitization measures and green technology for industry also allow movement towards the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) especially SDG 9 (Industry, Innovations, and Infrastructure) SDG 12 (Responsible Consumption and Production).

  • 15.00-17.00 PANEL DISCUSSION: Naturally Based Technologies as a Response to Global Challenges and Basis for a New Industrial Revolution

    Nowadays the humanity is on the threshold of a scientific-technological revolution that is bringing fundamental changes in people’s everyday life. Responses to this should be found by all the global community including those of politics and science. In the context of globalization, more and more countries and regions are getting involved in technological development that causes more intensive resource consumption, environmental degradation, resources access conflicts and increasing of social inequality. The reason for the anticipated energy crisis is the antagonism of a nature and the technosphere created by mankind. Science can help with this technological challenge. Already today, science provides opportunities to create fundamentally new technologies for energy generation and technologies for energy consumption based on wildlife examples – naturally based technologies in the form of technical systems and technological processes integrated into natural resource management. Technologies merger and erasure of borders between digital, production and biological fields are considered to be the core characteristics for new industrial revolution. Development of naturally based and convergent technologies should become one of directions for the achievement of merging. Such technologies would contribute to achieving the goals of the global sustainable industrial development.
