The so-called 4th industrial revolution is expected to lead societies and economies to adapt and to undertake pervasive, if not disruptive, transformations. This session aims at stimulating policy reflections on the territorial dimension of such processes by discussing:

  • territorial evidence on the advancement of technological transformations in European regions
  • the territorial mechanisms favouring the emergence and diffusion of the new technologies
  • the territorial impact on economic performance and the society of the present technological transformation.

ESPON contributes to this session with the applied research Technological Transformation & Transitioning of Regional Economies.
