Without support from EU|BICs the market will not provide sufficient offers to Industry 4.0 disruptive technologies. Startups working with potentially disruptive technologies are too early, and too risky to be interesting for investors.
The EU|BIC community and EBN have driven the adoption of demand-driven, Responsible Research an Innovation, and inclusive incubation approaches in numerous regions, empowering all entrepreneurs, scientists, corporates, governments and citizens to develop challenge-based solutions benefiting their daily lives.
Ideas might pivot or change, but pursuing an entrepreneurial journey under an incubation programme requires commitment and dedicated efforts. It requires competence and will to adapt to new methods, and courage to surpass all the difficulties that are thrown into our new venture.
The European way to a digitalised economy and society is about solidarity, prosperity, and sustainability, anchored in the empowerment of its citizens and businesses, ensuring the security and resilience of its digital ecosystem and supply chains.
n this first report, we will outline the EU|BIC, EU and SME approach to digital transformation and Industry 4.0: the “why now” question; and the characteristics that participants must understand to partake and thrive in the Industry 4.0 ecosystem.
