Short description (intelligible to all):

Industry 4.0 is the term used to describe the intelligent
digitalisation and networking of industrial value creation. The German
government’s high-tech strategy sees Industry 4.0 as a major project
that will help maintain Germany’s future global competitive capacity.

The purpose of the proposed project is to define the potential
benefits and challenges associated with the implementation of Industry
4.0 beyond the technical aspects primarily researched so far, but with a
special, integrative focus on the economic, ecological and social
aspects in their interaction with technological developments and
solutions. As part of the project, we will consider the correlations
between opportunity and risk on all three levels of sustainability to
form a normative model of sustainable value creation that can be
differentiated on the basis of different value creation typologies. It
will then be possible to outline specific integration strategies for the
practical realisation of Industry 4.0.
