Changing SME business by industry 4.0

Chain project contributes to the Digitizing European Industry initiative. It aims to provide a basis for the creation of new competencies for Higher Education (HE) students and Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) for dealing with the change brought by the Industry 4.0 (I4.0) “revolution”. Europe needs to learn how to deal with a profound digitisation of society which is already blurring the lines between workers and self-employed, goods and services, and consumers and producers.
