This workshop is co-organized by Digital Futures Seed Project Industry 5.0 research towards a circular economy and community building and the KTH Industrial Transformation Platform.

As Industry 5.0 ushers in a new era of innovation, it’s imperative we move forward with sustainability at the forefront.

This workshop emphasizes the green transition through digitalization and innovative business transformations. More than just a series of presentations, this event seeks to bridge gaps between specialists in industrial systems, digitalization, and the circular economy.

In the first half, we aim to identify the needs of our partners. We hope to gather a holistic view of the current landscape by inviting domain experts, stakeholders, and solution providers.

The second half will pivot to solution-focused discussions, including potential collaborations and a deep dive into research priorities. For a more interactive experience, we are adopting the ‘world cafe method’. Participants will engage in dynamic table discussions; each centered around a pivotal question or keyword. With an all-day schedule, ample time for brainstorming, networking, and collaborative ideation exists.
