Industry 4e flyer cover

The digitalisation of industry – Industry 4.0 – is rapidly transforming all stages of the production value chain of goods globally. Advances in robotics, data collection, cybersecurity and other technologies are creating increasingly efficient, flexible and tailored manufacturing processes. If exploited, these technologies could create huge growth in European industries.

The Industry4.E Lighthouse takes a special focus on all means of microelectronics and ICT for Digital Industry. Operating across project, funding, and national boundaries, Industry4.E brings together relevant RDI projects funded across various funding programmes helping them to connect with each other and the end-user/stakeholder community.

To support the implementation of activities in relation to the Industry4.E Lighthouse, ECSEL JU via Horizon 2020 have funded a Coordination and Support Action (CSA) for 24 months starting in October 2018. CSA-Industry4.E intends to:

  • Support the LIASE in establishing the Lighthouse;
  • Actively assist in enabling successful execution of the Digital Industry roadmap;
  • Engage research communities - coordinate the relevant stakeholders, project consortia and policy-makers;
  • Facilitate, support and assist Industry4.E projects in effectively exploiting project results;
  • Promote the Lighthouse visibility;
  • Develop and implement a public engagement and outreach strategy to raise the visibility of Industry4.E to the broader public and related initiatives.

The expected impacts are:

  • A federated effort towards a challenging industrial vision to generate European industrial leadership in Industry digitalisation, and a strong potential for longer term technological innovation and economic exploitation;
  • Involvement and commitment from key stakeholders;
  • Increased transnational collaboration between the relevant European initiatives in the Field;
  • Spreading of excellence on digitalisation of industry across Europe;
  • Increased awareness of European activities in this field.




Olga Ormond

Olga leads AquaTT's involvement in the Industry4.E project. Her specific role includes leading Work Package 4 (WP4), to develop and implement a public engagement and outreach strategy to raise the visibility of Industry4.E to the broader public and related initiatives. WP4 includes engaging with citizens (face to face and via a social media campaign) introducing and discussing potential impact of Industry4.E on their daily lives. In addition, work will include reinforcing links to other initiatives at transnational, national and regional level. AquaTT will also lead a task in WP3 to organise a series of Industry4.E internal workshops to identify exploitable results emerging from Industry4.E projects and to shape their potential for exploitation.
