European Executive Forum (EEF)

October 6, 2020 4:00 PM - 7:45 PM UTC+1

Theme: Back to Business: Accelerating Industrial and Societal Transformations

At the Virtual European Executive Forum 2020, industry leaders will discuss how industry is being reshaped and society being transformed by a wave of Industrial Automation and Robotics, Remote Maintenance and Digital Twins. These digital transformation trends are unleashed and enabled by the coming-of-age of AI, 5G, Cloud Computing and Cybersecurity, and are now suddenly accelerated by the dramatic effects of the world pandemic sweeping the world over.

While all this is happening, the world is still navigating the minefield of a new Cold War, hampering exports and tearing up the global supply networks. In a world asked to take sides – US vs. China: friend or foe? — can Europe profit by carving out an independent, leading role for itself? And globally, can central banks’ massive liquidity injections facilitate bold investments in new technologies?

We will also discuss about automotive, where – despite slower auto sales and fully autonomous vehicle rollout being pushed back in time – innovation is continuing unperturbed. In particular we will examine the unprecedented levels of electronics reliability demanded by the automotive industry, as more semiconductors are used in critical vehicle functions and as emerging business models are predicated on an uninterrupted 24/7 exploitation of self-driving vehicles.
