11:00-15:45 The Fourth Industrial Revolution: Inflection Point, Entropy, or Interregnum?


Speaker: Dr. Takis Damaskopoulos, Executive Director and Head of Research, European Institute of Interdisciplinary Research (EIIR), Paris, France

Time: 11:00-15:45, 28th May

Room: C106



The purpose of the workshop is to present an overview of a wider-ranging research program on what is being increasingly referred to as the Fourth Industrial Revolution. The workshop highlights the key research concentration areas and thematic streams. It intends exploring the key transformative tendencies of our time and also gaining engagement in debate, criticism and active participation in retaining what is socially and economically beneficial and constructive while avoiding what is harmful and destructive. Because, as we shall see, there is potential for plenty of both. 


  1. “Defining the field of investigation” explores the main aspects of the field of investigation by focusing on selected elements of the 4IR and its periodization as a historical phenomenon. 
  2. “Conceptual Framework and Method” elaborates the conceptual and methodological framework of the program.
  3. “Micro-level: The 4IR on the level of the firm, functions and phases of production”

    • Centralization vs. decentralization in the “platform economy”.
    • The changing economic geography: reshuffling.
    • Commoditization and  “smart specialization”.
    • Symbiotic  vs. parasitic ecosystems.
  5. “Macro-level: The 4IR on the level of the state, innovation, and sustainability”
    • Industry  4.0:  a  new  innovation  “enabling  framework”
    • Comparative readiness for Industry 4.0.
    • Employment and skills:  Industry  4.0  skillsets and  Uberization.
