New boost for future technologies

Frank Pos­sel-Döl­ken has taken over the chair­manship of the stee­ring com­mit­tee of the Plat­form Indus­try 4.0.

In line with Coro­na, the han­do­ver took place pure­ly vir­tual­ly as part of the Han­no­ver Mes­se Digital.

Pos­sel-Döl­ken has set his sights on a new digi­ta­liz­a­ti­on push for the topic of Indus­try 4.0. He sees the digi­tal twin and the Euro­pean cloud pro­ject GAIA‑X as cen­tral ele­ments. The net­work of over 350 play­ers from more than 150 orga­niz­a­ti­ons from poli­tics, busi­ness, sci­ence, tra­de uni­ons and asso­cia­ti­ons, he said, pro­vi­des the necessa­ry backing to show that tech­no­lo­gy can be excel­lent­ly recon­ci­led with eco­no­mic and eco­lo­gi­cal sustainability. 

We can only suc­ceed in this tog­e­ther with the strong net­work of the plat­form,” empha­si­zes the Chief Digi­tal Offi­cer of Phoe­nix Con­ta­ct. “With our ide­as for more sus­taina­bi­li­ty, we are secu­ring our future competitiveness.”
