A workshop created by Daxo Group for train on Industry 4.0 topics adapted to specific industrial contexts so that they are inclusive and useful to people of all generations and all genders. Industry 4.0 is having a considerable impact on the world of work but unfortunately the data show that women are unable to fully grasp the great opportunity represented by this technological revolution.

The involvement of female human capital will make it possible to promote gender equality, an important element in the national and international regulatory context.

UCBM it is the first university to host the itinerant workshop which will visit 10 cities in Italy. "The daily commitment of our University to support companies is allowing us to change the gender balance all together within the production sector - stresses Marcella Trombetta, President of the Master's Degree Course in IngChemical Engineering for Sustainable Development and coordinator of the Awareness Node of ARTES4.0@UCBM – highlighting how once exclusively male roles can also be filled, with equivalent professionalism, by different people regardless of gender ”.
