The Industry 4.0 National Technology Platform was established under the leadership of the Institute for Computer Science and Control (SZTAKI), Hungarian Academy of Sciences, with the participation of research institutions, companies, universities and professional organizations having premises in Hungary, and with the full support and commitment of the Government of Hungary, and specifically that of the Ministry of National Economy.
The background of the initiative is that Hungary, too, is witnessing the advent of the era of a new technological change, when the internet based economy is transforming the very basics of the production and logistic systems. The theoretical and practical problems to be resolved are of such complexity that make the cooperation between the research and university spheres on the one hand and industrial companies on the other hand indispensable, both in the national and the international arena.
