The COVID 19 pandemic has shown the vulnerability of global value chains. It has shown how essential the digital transformation and cyber security are for the resilience of the industry. Trust and “Trustworthiness-profile”, as developed by the Plattform Industrie 4.0, are key components for securing national and international Industrie 4.0 value creating networks. On a European level the data infrastructure project GAIA-X is gaining momentum and international support. The conference will bring global discussion forward on Trustworthiness, Interoperability and Digital Sovereignty.

The Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy, Germany and the Plattform Industrie 4.0 are delighted to invite you to the
