Innovations for Tomorrow: Implications of the 4th Industrial Revolution

This event is an exploration of the future and the implications it will have on Romania’s development.

Organised by the Global Shapers Bucharest Hub in partnership with Hello Tomorrow, this event looks at some of the most important trends and tipping points that come with the fourth industrial revolution: digital, physical, biological and industrial. We will also look at how these influence the next decades in Romania and what are some of the opportunities and challenges for Romanian society.

Topics include future of transport & mobility, smart cities, future of work, digital citizenship, AI decision making, implantable technologies, personalised medicine, blockchain, sharing economy, 3D printing or new business models.

As a community of the World Economic Forum, the Global Shapers Community builds upon many of the conversations in WEF events like the one in Davos, to (de)construct some of the key insights of the implications of this new industrial revolution for the world and, in particular, for Romania.

The First Industrial Revolution used water and steam power to mechanise production. The Second used electric power to create mass production. The Third used electronics and information technology to automate production. Now a Fourth Industrial Revolution is building on the Third, the digital revolution that has been occurring since the middle of the last century. It is characterised by a fusion of technologies that is blurring the lines between the physical, digital, and biological spheres. Klaus Schwab, Founder & Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum

This event is done in partnership with Hello Tomorrow, one of the largest global competitions for start-ups in science and technology with impactful solutions to real world problems. It is a partner event in a large global series of events looking at deep-tech in Paris, San Francisco, Sao Paolo, Seoul, Bangalore, Los Angeles, Istanbul or Islamabad.

Proudly taking part during the Bucharest Technology Week 2017, this event also looks to promote Romanian start-ups that through their innovation contribute to the creation of a sustainable ”tomorrow”.
