IASP travel to Nantes, France for their annual world conference in 2019!
The theme for 2019 will be THE 4TH INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION: AREAS OF INNOVATION AND SCIENCE PARKS AS KEY BOOSTERS FOR A SUCCESSFUL TRANSITION . They define the 4th industrial revolution by the convergence of digital technologies (Big Data, IoT, …), biotechnologies, and the physics of the infinitely small. The great promises of this fourth industrial revolution are to seduce consumers with unique and personalized products.
In addition to the technological aspects, this fourth industrial revolution affects different aspects of our modern societies. New challenges emerge through this new way of producing: economic, social, political, environmental.
Multi-disciplinary, at the crossroads of digital and all its application markets, connecting researchers, startups and large companies, IASP’s « innovation hubs » are ideally placed to support this 4th industrial revolution, which impacts all sectors and to ensure that its upheavals are sustainable for the economy and society.
Sharing good practices and debating the impacts of the 4th Industrial Revolution on the industry is the challenge the 36th IASP World Conference proposes to meet.
The IASP World Conference has been held annually since 1984 and is the main networking event of the association, gathering an ever-increasing number of delegates and speakers from all over the world.
