The aim of this talk is to lay the foundation for discussions on the matter if research in high-energy physics (HEP) is a driver, a user or both, in relation to Industry 4.0.
It presents the current trends in HEP R&D areas and the priorities of the European Strategy for Particle Physics. The Industry 4.0 technologies are briefly described and their impact on HEP R&D is discussed, as well as the expected influence of the HEP research on the development of Industry 4.0 components.
The role of the HEPTech Network as a match–making tool between companies providing Industry 4.0 technologies and HEP research community is highlighted.
