Development of New Skills: Innovation and Sustainability in Industry 4.0
Industrial processes play a vital role in the world economy. Innovation is considered an essential and necessary component in the development of product manufacturing techniques, while research is a powerful tool to strengthen this industry further.

Currently, industrial development must be related to environmental concern and sustainability, so the search for new skills to be implemented in the industry is no longer only due to an economic need but to general demands related to the social and environmental development of humanity.
