The COVID-19 pandemic is accelerating the trend towards networked production - because Industrie 4.0 makes industry more resilient and more competitive. It also opens up long-term development paths for a sustainable economy. The companies, associations, scientific institutes and social partners that are represented in the Plattform Industrie 4.0 frame their commitment to Industrie 4.0 in this position paper: They want to consistently advance the digital transformation and make Europe a global pioneer for open, digital B2B ecosystems. For their concrete measures they expect political support.
