Panel: Industry 4.0 in The Nordics

Industry 4.0 refers to smart manufacturing and production – smart factories, in which intelligent and interconnected cyber-physical systems autonomously control physical processes and communicate and cooperate both with each other and with humans, thanks to such technologies as the IoT and its sensors and controls embedded in physical devices.

The Nordics have a strong Industrial history,
specially in Sweden - how do we use this latest industrial evolution to our advantage? Meet industry leaders from Sweden, Denmark, and Norway in this panel session.

Moderator - Fredrik Syversen, Director of Industry Development - in IKT-Norge - Norwayś Business Association for the Digital Industry.

Digitizing is therefore necessary to be able to reach the goal. If you start in the wrong end it can be really expensive.

Is it possible to get the industry back to Norway?

The industry provides export revenues to the country and is important for research and development in the business sector. In the last 20 years the industry has been torn down. Germany has focused on digitizing the industry - a program called Industry 4.0, where the industry is being built up. Can we manage to get the industry back and how do we create an Industry 4.0 in Norway? What is required to building the country again?
