Dr Hafiz Muhammad Naeem
Managing Editor
Over the course of my PhD and research fellowships in Italy and the UK, I have developed my knowledge-base and research interests in projects related to the Fourth Industrial Revolution (Industry 4.0), 3D printing, SMEs, performance measurement and management and open innovation. I am keen to explore the impact of Industry 4.0 technologies on SMEs, end-user innovation and entrepreneurship. Finding an academic position with research and industry collaboration opportunities is my immediate preference.
