#EDEN14 Smarter training for smart manufacturing towards the 4th industrial revolution


Fabrizio Cardinali, keynote speaker day two

The industrial revolution clock, rapid progress provided over recent years. The digital disruption triggered by the internet moving us toward the 4th industrial revolution. New players, new stakeholders, new accepted models of producing and consuming, eg the digital marketplace, 3D printing as accessible to consumers, developments in robotics, development and commercial use of drones. Potential to be astonishing. Most growth driven by the US, how can we mirror this success in Europe? Cardinali feels it is possible – educators must play a part, need to react to change, recognise genius,…. But do it fast
