Is data taking over European manufacturing?
Data is an increasing input in manufacturing sectors. Production is already highly digitised, increasing the need for global and secure access to data. Costs of information services, data processing and software regularly exceeds costs of energy or raw materials.
As more and more things go online – everything from self-driving cars to 3D printing – European industrial planners and lawmakers are visibly struggling to understand what it means to their manufacturing driven economies.
Join the conversation between Magnus Rentzhog (author of the report ‘No transfer, no production’) and Hosuk Lee-Makiyama discuss:
– How is data used in production?
– What are the new trade barriers to manufacturing trade?
– Is European manufacturing under threat from Industry 4.0?
