A new multidisciplinary approach to knowledge is needed to manage the complexity of our discoveries and for the development of new technologies, by combining the methodologies coming from philosophy to the powerful tools made available today by information science. The event organized by the University of Bologna "Digitalization of Knowledge and Industrial Technologies" is a unique opportunity aimed to present a mutli-discliplinary perspective to one of the most important topic that will shape our future.
Within an agenda divided in three round tables, VISION, IMPLEMENTATION and FUTURE SOCIETIES, nine international speakers will debate involving the public about the philosophical nature of our knowledge and the ways to express and exploit it through digital sciences to improve industrial technologies.
The event will be closed by Peter Droell the EC Director of DG-RTD.F "Prosperity", whose directorate includes among the others Industry 5.0 and Materials for Tomorrow units, Harald Hartung the EC Head of Unit DG-RTD.E.4 "Fair Societies & Cultural Heritage", and Anne de Baas EC Policy Officer of DG-RTD.F.4 "Materials for the Future", that will provide an insight of what we should expect in the next years moving towards Horizon Europe.
The event represents an excellent opportunity to discuss the future of EU digital industrial policy and the knowledge management strategies, together with an overview of the social impact of digital technologies applied to industry and is dedicated to representatives from states and regions, industry, SMEs, academics from humanities to applied sciences and engineering, research and technology centres.
In the past one single man like Leonardo Da Vinci was able to embrace most of the human knowledge and technologies available at that time. The modern Leonardo will not be a digital entity, but a man that uses digital technologies to navigate through knowledge and to implement new technologies.
