Exploring Research and Innovation Challenges of Fourth Industrial Revolution During COVID-19

During COVID-19, considering the fourth Industrial revolution, in order to prepare ourselves we need a strong interaction between industry and academia. COVID-19 has changed the way the world in all aspects of life. During this pandemic, research and innovation will require a huge technical transformation. We as electrical engineers should play the biggest role in this movement. What will be our innovation challenges then? What will be the motivation for our research? Which fields should be prioritized right now? How can we entangle our research with industries? To address the research and innovation challenges during COVID-19, the industry is facing several new challenges and academic researchers need to drive innovative research to meet the industrial demand.
