Envisioning Industry 5.0 and Society 5.0

Dr Nitika Sharma: [email protected]

The concepts behind Society 5.0 and Industry 5.0 are not merely a realistic chronological continuation or an alternative to the paradigm of Industry 4.0 (Potočan et al., 2020). The goal of Society 5.0 is to put people and the public at the focal point of innovation by combining the outcomes of Industry 4.0 with the technical advancements that have been made to improve the quality of life, social responsibility, and sustainability. This innovative viewpoint shares a number of aspects in common with the Sustainable Development Goals that have been established by the United Nations.

The terms "Society 5.0" and "Industry 5.0" both refer to a fundamental paradigm shift in societies and economies, one that aims to balance economic growth with the contemporary solutions to social and environmental issues as well as the complexities proffered by human-machine interactions and the correlating of skills (Breque et al., 2021). Current trends towards Industry 5.0 introduce a complementary view, targeting a sustainable, human-centric, and resilient industry. The notion of Society 5.0 represents an even more comprehensive strategy for science, technology and innovation aiming for a people-centric super-smart society.

In this context, this special issue aims to bring together multidisciplinary perspectives in academia, and industry as well as practice for discussion and debate. It will offer insights to all towards envisioning Industry 5.0 and a smart Society 5.0 and ways to resonate it with public policies.
