César Jiménez, Ternium Mexico’s CEO, is also the president of the Nuevo León 4.0 governing board.
“We want to establish strategies for the Industry 4.0 adaptation and to use the potential that the Northeast of the country has, especially in Nuevo León, so we can become a state-of-the-art technological hub,” that was what César Jiménez, Nuevo León 4.0 governing board president, said in the opening ceremony of the Third Global Bioethics and Industry 4.0 Congress.
The forum, which took place on-site on November 11th in the Universidad Regiomontana (also known as U-ERRE), had as an objective to position ethics in Industry 4.0, by promoting productive activities for social and economical well-being.
“From the corporate sector, we are witnesses of the digital transformation that has developed because of the current disease that made us create new business schemes that preserve people’s health and allow us to be closer, even if it is remote, in spite of the distance,” Jiménez added, also Ternium’s CEO.
Nuevo León 4.0 initiative is a collaboration program between schools, companies, entrepreneurs, society, and government for promoting the integration of Industry 4.0 in the state. Jiménez was named President of the governing board on the first days of October.
During the Global Bioethics Forum, which was organized by the U-ERRE, alongside Universidad de Monterrey, Universidad Autónoma de Nuevo León, and Tecnológico de Monterrey, topics related to the new technologies and the innovations in sciences were also discussed.
It was the third edition of the congress.
Ángel Casán, U-ERRE’s dean, talked about two types of thinking: the geometric and the critical, which must be incorporated into the trends of the coming years.
“The trends towards conception, human cloning, artificial intelligence, and life on Mars, all of them through the multiplicative sciences of development and ambition that we, as humans, have always had and will never stop having, are topics that lead us to ethic analysis, where all decisions have as a center, or base, the human being,” Casán mentioned.

Meanwhile, José Lázaro Tamez, Nuevo León 4.0 Initiative Platform coordinator, highlighted the importance of these forums for the public agenda and to value the benefits of scientific and technological innovations.
“Global bioethics, in this changing age, must be used for a wellness culture that will transmit peace and won’t let us drown in globalization, one in which we can value scientific and technological innovations for an authentic, integral, and inclusive development,” Tamez commented.
