Digitalization and innovation are changing industrial production processes, have a profound impact on the future of work, and bring new opportunities and challenges for companies, that are active in the transatlantic marketplace. When both sides of the Atlantic bring their respective strengths in this field to the table, there is great potential for transatlantic economic integration. On the US side, those strengths predominantly relate to the US economy’s innovative leadership and Big Data capabilities. On the European side, the concept of "Industry 4.0", i.e. the complete digitization and integration of industrial value chains, comes to mind. Moreover, questions on norms, standards, digital sovereignty, and secure data transfers also play an increasingly important role. Deeper transatlantic cooperation will enable both economic areas to face global competition with greater strength. 

With an eye on future business opportunities, RGIT is committed to a transatlantic exchange of ideas. Based in the heart of the US capital, RGIT serves as a first point of contact in the US for companies in search of the right contacts for a successful dialogue and a deeper understanding of core competencies in both the US and European market.
