Summary

This edited volume brings together a group of expert contributors to explore the opportunities and the challenges that Industry 4.0 (smart manufacturing) is likely to pose for regions, firms and jobs in Europe. Drawing on theory and empirical cases, it considers emerging issues like servitization, new innovation models for local production systems, and the increase in reshoring.

Industry 4.0 and Regional Transformation captures the complexity of this new manufacturing model in an accessible way and considers its implications for the future. It will be essential reading for advanced students, researchers and policymakers in regional studies, industrial policy, economic geography, innovation studies, operations management and engineering.
