Recent globalization and industrialization efforts have pushed many companies to consider innovation efficiency and its effectiveness in achieving sustainability seriously. Industries seek to integrate innovative and digital thinking into the company, resulting in different digitalised innovation theories. This talk will briefly explore how Industry 4.0 technologies will impact the supply chain and circular economy to achieve a transition to digitalised circular economy, low carbon supply chain, and also present results and insights applied to real-world problems.
