Background: The Industry 4.0 platform

The Industrie 4.0 platform was founded in 2013 as a joint project of the German industry associations BITKOM, VDMA and ZVEI to further develop and implement the future-oriented Industrie 4.0 project of the German government's High-Tech Strategy. In 2015, the platform was expanded to include stakeholders from companies, associations, trade unions, science and politics. The focus of the platform's work is to bundle expertise relating to Industry 4.0 and make it available to German companies, especially small and medium-sized enterprises.
