It has been talked a lot about the need of the 4th industrial revolution, but the discussion has become more concrete after the launch of the Industria 4.0 plan by the Ministry for the Economic Development.
The objective is clear: the spread of technologies must allow industries – even the small ones – to take part in the global value chains. In this view, innovation’s technologies have a crucial role as far as companies’ development is concerned. However, research and development are also themes which had been included into Filo’s agenda for years. That is why the conferecence for the inauguration of the 47th edition of Filo, organised in cooperation with Italian Trade Agency and Sistema Moda Italia, focuses on “Filo 4.0: Innovation and digitalisation as key factors for companies’s growth”.
The conference will be held on the 22nd of February 2017 at 2.30 pm at Palazzo delle Stelline in Milan – Sala Pirelli; registrations at this link
