Social Lab 1 Academic Research

Social Lab 1 – Germany

The digital transformation has far-reaching consequences for companies, citizens, politics and technology development.

Industry 4.0 is an important field of action in this context, as it combines new technological opportunities with the future of work.

Against this background, SmartFactoryOWL in Lemgo (Germany) sees itself as a platform for shaping the digital transformation.

In the social lab the SmartFactoryOWL brings together all actors from industry, science, politics and society who are important for shaping the work of the future. Together with companies from industrial production, industry chambers, research organizations and universities, regional political actors, trade unions and works councils, the aim is to jointly develop new solutions and strategies for the future of work in industry 4.0.
