The conference theme “The 4th Industrial Revolution: areas of innovation and science parks as key boosters for a successful transition” has attracted some thought-provoking contributions on the opportunities and challenges the future will hold for our industry, the ways in which STPs and AOIs are preparing for a digital world, and the new structures they are deploying to support their companies. Delegates will also hear from some fast-growing startups, who will present their innovative products in some of the key technology sectors of the 4th Industrial Revolution.

Invited speakers will include Dr. Yves Lostanlen from Element AI, a growing Canadian company that delivers AI software products designed to make businesses stronger, safer and more agile in fintech, insurtech and supply chain, Dr Markus Thomas Münter, Professor of Economics at htw saar in Saarbrücken, Germany, and co-founder of a consultancy supporting SMEs to develop sustainable innovation strategies, leverage digitalization and re-position in a disruptive environment with blurring market and industry boundaries, and Philippe Roger, Director General of Orange Consulting (France).
