Welcome to Silkroad 4.0, a promotional private initiative where adventure meets technology.
We want to share our passion for Adventure travelling, technology & for bringing people together by broadcasting how European IoT Technology impacts a long distance motorcycle adventure. Along the way, we would like to interview IoT technology experts and promote an online directory of experts where they can share insights. Areas of interest include: internet of things and iota; cryptocurrencies like bitcoin; digital data visualizations, and fintech. Please check out www.silkroad40.com/objectives/ for more details.
So the main activities of Silkroad 4.0 are:
To achieve these goals, we have launched several initiatives:
“If you are a determined enemy of your backside and haven’t yet swallowed enough dust and sand then you embark on a motorbike mission of this kind. But later when you again can sit you have a lot to tell and help possible customers or suppliers from first-hand experience!”

The world changes due to rapid advances in technology. This provides many opportunities but is also challenging us. In order to take advantage of the opportunities and also to face the challenges we need to work and stay close together, collaboration is a must. Silkroad 4.0 fosters innovation and knowledge to find solutions for the upcoming challenges, and is thus a great example of collaboration at European level.

It has become increasingly significant to provide more visibility to research outcomes and present them to the interested public. That is why innovative dissemination projects such as Silkroad 4.0 are highly welcomed, as they emphasize the importance of the promotion of research results in unique and creative ways.

Silkroad 4.0 is an excellent example of how technology can be used as enabler to build bridges between different countries and their cultures. This united European approach brings people closer together and proves that digitization can lead to great accomplishments for all of us.

In our digitized world, the industrialization of cutting-edge technologies can only be achieved by bringing together all actors from all sectors of industry and research. What we need to drive our society forward are new eco-systems, which can only be created if competence, vision and cooperation come together. Therefore it needs global initiatives, and Silkroad 4.0 is a perfect best-practice example in this context.
