I would like to invite you to propose a paper for a Special Issue of Sustainability entitled “Society 5.0 and Industry 4.0: Relations and Implications”.
Industry 4.0 is the result of the technological progress of the fourth Industrial Revolution. The term "Industry 4.0" was introduced in 2011 by Henning Kagermann, professor of physics and former president of the SAP board, and evolved into a strategy for the development of German industry. Industry 4.0 is intelligent industry, and the scope of this concept (also known as a 4th Industrial Revolution) is the digitalization of production processes in industry. Industry 4.0 uses the technical achievements of the third Industrial Revolution (i.e., the degree of automation and digitization in production that has already been achieved). At the fourth level of change, there is a strong combination of operational technology (OT) and information technology (IT) in production. In industry, cyber-physical production systems (CPPS) are created by incorporating technological devices into the Internet space created by the Internet of Things (IoT), Internet of Services (IoS), and Big and Mining Data.
The progress of Industry 4.0 is characterized by the rapid change of the business and social environment and continuous growth. Very important are not only the business but also the social impacts of the Industry 4.0 concept. This new way of operating business and the increase of digitalization also leads to societal changes, and this impact on society is called Society 5.0. The concept of Society 5.0 has been promoted by the Japanese government since 2015. In this concept, taking the technological change of industry into account we should focus on the general welfare of citizens and aim for a superintelligent society.
Qualitative and quantitative empirical research studies are desired in this Special Issue. We welcome papers that show the impact of various factors (social, economic, managerial, technical) on Industry 4.0 and Society 5.0—functioning, widespread and various implications.
