POB5.T9 Socio-cultural and methodological challenges of Industry 4.0

Industry 4.0 (society 5.0, post-digital society) mark a qualitatively significant change, which can be described as a „grand innovation”,
which involves specific challenges for science and technology,
namely:

a)the need to adopt a specific methodology (trans-disciplinary one – the top-down approach) as a tool to study complex sociotechnical problems;

b)changes in the way of science and technology operatations - conducting research, disseminaton of innovation, etc.

In consequence, the lack of an adequate response to these challenges on the part of science and technology leads to a kind of their "ideologisation" (similar to the situation regarding "sustainable development").

The adequate answers to these challenges concerning both social sciences (humanities) and technical sciences as their subject and object, concern:

1.implementation and development of research and education in the field of STS (Science, Technology and Society) - international and interdisciplinary programmes with technical and humanistic content (the Silesian University of Technology may be currently the only technical university in Poland in this area);

2.implementation in different types of sciences of the research procedures of creation
and dissemination methods of their results, in accordance with the idea of
RRI (Responsible Research and Innovations) or Reallabor.

Both these lines of action require close interaction between technical and social sciences.
