We support public administration and manufacturing networks (clusters) to understand the societal impact of new manufacturing technologies. This acts as baseline input to jointly define strategic educational and training programmes to improve their competitiveness in the mid-term.
We provide strategic support to SMEs, RTOs, and agencies working with SMEs to understand the benefits of Industry 4.0, leveraging novel adoption frameworks to facilitate the effective introduction of new technologies that could generate a greater impact in their manufacturing processes.
We have conceptualised and implemented successful triple-helix collaborative initiatives that allow the accelerated development of novel Industry 4.0 technologies. To do so, we typically leverage the Framework Programme, H2020/Horizon Europe (INEA), and Interreg VA/VB programmes (ERDF), among others. Results reach the market and benefit EU society in the coming three to five years, enabling SMEs to tap into innovative niche markets that will increase their competitiveness.
Trend management and foresight studies allow individual entities to understand the degree of maturity and adoption of international trends and novel developments. Through these studies, we help public administration understand the impact of such technologies on their regional economy.
Whether an established player or new to Industry 4.0, we can help you identify innovative business opportunities, starting with the definition of strategic multi-criteria frameworks for risk-attractiveness assessment, leading to the definition of innovative business models and use cases.
How can #collaborativerobots in the workplace provide benefits?
With the #manufacturing industry facing substantial challenges, take a look at how robots can solve issues from workplace safety to reducing the cost of production.
“Buildings and infrastructure are responsible for at least 40% of all greenhouse gas emissions. In addition, modern constructions mostly use cement and steel, 2 materials whose production consumes an enormous amount of energy and directly releases CO2”.
Last but not least, Ger van den Kerkhof of @FlandersMake presents the #COTEMACO SME Support programme, which gives #manufacturing SMEs hands-on experience with #collaborativerobots – including support valued up to €20k!
Minna Lanz of @TampereUni is the 2nd speaker of our webinar. She explains how Digital Innovation Hubs (#DIHs) can play an important role in supporting the R&D&I technology leaps that are strongly tied to the #competitiveness and #sustainability of the European economy.
‘The Future of Manufacturing in Europe’ has started! Our 1st speaker is @torres__an of @EU_ScienceHub, exploring the impact of #industrialrobots on the EU economy.
“People blame robots for the loss of jobs, but there is a positive relationship between robot use and employment.”
