Boosting digital transformation

Digitalization is deeply affecting all industry sectors as the driver of product, service and business innovation, but also as the threat to organizations which are reluctant to change or not keeping pace with the evolving environment. Many Central European production companies are urgently searching for guidance and support to master the transformation towards Industry 4.0. These trends are not challenging only for the companies, but also for the business support organizations in need to enhance their services.
Join us to learn more about the opportunities and threats of digitalization and Industry 4.0, and how Boost4BSO project results take part in the inevitable industry transformation.
