Topic: „Towards Industry 5.0: A personal view” by Prof. Rodolfo Haber from The Center for Automation and Robotics of the Spanish Council for Scientific Research (CSIC) and Polytechnic University of Madrid (UPM)

Built on the pillars of human-centricity and resilience, Industry 5.0 is focused on fostering the industry towards a new paradigm that not only remains within economic boundaries but also actively contributes to well-being and sustainability. The adoption of Industry 5.0 principles is just at the beginning phase in Europe, where the paradigm is transitioning from awareness and methods development to implementation. In this conference, the industrial human needs, human factors and potential future applications are analysed, exploring the links with cyber-physical human systems and enabling technologies. The initiative of Community of Practice of Industry 5.0 (CoP Industry 5.0, European Commission) is also presented. Two case studies with applications in the industry and the recently funded Horizon Europe project FORTIS, all driven by Artificial Intelligence, are discussed. Finally, some directions and specific areas for potential future collaboration are presented.
