Event overview

The transformation of organisations to an Industry 4.0 environment will involve a range of possible issues, barriers and challenges. For example, how do our primary, secondary and tertiary education systems support producing individuals who will contribute to this major change? Professor Cropley will discuss how this is not simply a question of gearing up with the technology, but an issue of human capital of organisations – skills, education, training and motivation.
