This presentation focuses on an intriguing unfolding of an intense methodological approach for reviewing and evaluating a longitudinal process to finally yield a “here and now” of a 2023 present-day snapshot. This longitudinal research process (over 4 years) covered a complex and dynamic topic; the transition of Industry 4.0 to 5.0. Whilst there are many moving parts to such a topic, an intensive workshop of 5 days brought together a research team funded by an EU Horizon 2020, at Kaunas University of Technology to work through and crystallize the dynamics and range of views covering capabilities of automation, robotics, Internet of Things (IoT), manufacturing to AI-driven technologies driving the techno-economic yielding, contrasting the impacts of ecosystems and landscapes of the human-centric approaches. The Industry 5.0 European context entails the challenge of addressing the emergence of socio-environmental imbalances while holding the rapid pace of technological advancement. The transition covers a vast expanse of known and unknown perspectives, experiences and processes, that said, the process of highlighting the here and now was important in itself. The discussion viewed the complexities through a systemic lens, procuring perspectives underlining the challenges, but more importantly, questions what scenarios and insights could uncover.
