Industria Conectada 4.0 is a strategy promoted by the Secretary General for Industry and SMEs (SGIPYME) for the Ministry for Industry, Commerce and Tourism. The goal is to increase industrial added value and qualified employment in the sector and support a model for the industry of the future by developing digital solutions and promote differentiating competitive advantage to support Spanish industry and drive exports.
