Industry 4.0 strategy for the region of Panevėžys will be coordinated by a professional advisory board
Strategic advisory council for the development of Industry 4.0 in the region of Panevėžys is expected to start working in the following months. It will consist of highly experienced professionals representing regional businesses, educational, R&D and public sector institutions as well as independent experts on innovation, robotics and economic development.
The decision to form the strategic advisory council was made at the Panevėžys City Municipality in December. At that time, the leaders of regional businesses, educational, R&D and local government institutions made a joint decision that this step was necessary in order to consistently develop economic specialization chosen by the region of Panevėžys, namely robotics, automation and Industry 4.0.
According to Vytautas Kalinauskas, Project Manager of the City Development Department in the Panevėžys City Municipality, the advisory council will be responsible for the preparation of guidelines for the development of Industry 4.0 in the region and the adoption of other strategic decisions.
