A harmonized and innovation-friendly EU policy framework is essential for the Industrial Internet to flourish in Europe. How can national policy initiatives be effectively coordinated at EU level to avoid market fragmentation? Is there a need to review EU regulation to address issues related to data ownership, liability or safety? How can we assure that implementation of the EU General Data Protection Regulation will enable data-driven business models while preserving high standards of data privacy? And how can governments participate in innovative business models such as smart cities, eHealth or connected cars?

Panel 2: Business Collaboration in the Industrial Internet

While companies will compete for customers in the Industrial Internet, there is a need for cross-industry collaboration to realize new use cases and business models. What global standards are needed to exploit scale economies and to ensure end-to-end interoperability of technologies? How to scale platforms and business networks in the Industrial Internet? What kind of security standards do we need to build trust among business users? What are the topics for collaborative research to develop next generation technologies for the Industrial Internet?

Panel 3: Social Acceptance of the Industrial Internet

The Industrial Internet will be disruptive and change the way we live, learn and work. Social acceptance of those radical changes will be essential for the successful development of the Industrial Internet in Europe. How can we ensure that the high-quality jobs in the Industrial Internet will be created in Europe? How should labor law and social partnerships between employers and employees be adapted to facilitate flexible structures while ensuring a highly motivated workforce? How should curricula and the educational system be reformed to qualify the next generation for the digital workforce? And how can technology be leveraged to train the existing workforce for job opportunities in the Industrial Internet?
