Industry 4.0

Industry 4.0 concerns the enormous changes, challenges and opportunities presented by digitalisation in the manufacturing industry. The networking of machinery, plants and companies as well as new dimensions in creating value from analysing extensive quantities of data enable – and drive – innovative business models.

That is why the “Industry 4.0” platform was established in 2014 under the leadership of Business Upper Austria’s Mechatronics Cluster. The Mechatronics Cluster brings together the expertise and promotes entrepreneurial exchange of knowledge on the subject of Industry 4.0 – not only within Upper Austria but also together with other provinces, federal government and Business Upper Austria’s IT Cluster.


Information on current topics such as events, dates/deadlines and funding updates relating to “Industry 4.0” are also available on the platform Core-Smartwork.
