Collaborative Systems for Reindustrialization Current economic crisis, which is affecting many world regions, namely in Europe, has led to an intensification of discussions around the reindustrialization needs.
After decades of industrial decline, due to deliberate policies that advocated an exclusive move toward a service-oriented society, while neglecting the production of tradable goods, many countries are struggling with public and private belt-tightening measures which only accelerate the crisis spiral.
Reindustrialization appears as the economic, social, and political process of organizing resources for the purpose of re-establishing / revitalizing industries in order to reinvigorate the economy.
