Executive & Scientific Committee
The Innovation 4.0 Network is managed by an executive and scientific committee whose members are: the Leaders 4.0 (professors) at the 8 Universities, a program manager (coordinator) and research advisors. Monthly meeting are held to discuss strategy, future joint training and research projects, joint proposals, etc.
In addition, the Innovation 4.0 Network will have an industrial advisory board representing various business sectors, large and small companies, research consortia and associations.
