Smart Factory Hub - Improving RD and business policy conditions for transnational cooperation in the manufacturing industry

01 January 2017 - 30 June 2019

 

Smart Factory Hub - Improving RD and business policy conditions for transnational cooperation in the manufacturing industry -

 

Manufacturing industry represents a generator of R&D, innovation, growth and employment. Based on increasing pressure on manufacturers (increased production capacity in low-cost economies and increased level of sophistication of supply chains in high-cost economies), the manufacturers need to embrace novel technologies, principles and approaches. In other words, manufacturers need to digitize their production, while taking into consideration also improvement in processes and human resource management.

 

SMART FACTORY HUB (SFH) main objective is to improve framework conditions for innovation in the area of smart factory/Smart Manufacturing, based on Research and Innovation Smart Specialization Strategy (RIS3) centred model.

 

The basic strategic concept of the SFH is depicted on the following Figure below: 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

 

 

 

 

 

In order to follow project’s objective, we will be oriented to find novel solutions in the following 3 domains:

  • applying novel technologies,
  • applying effective production process and
  • applying effective human resource management systems

 

Project main outputs are following:

  • 1 common transnational Research and Innovation Smart Specialization Strategy - RIS3 centred Smart Factory Model with Action Plan and
  • 2 testing schemes - pilot implementation of innovative supply-driven (TransferLab) and demand-driven (PolicyLab) actions based on knowledge platform, cooperation profile matrix and learning hub for technology alliances.

 

Smart Factory Hub project execution is based on series of following Work Packages (WPs):

             WP0: PROJECT PREPARATION

             WP1: PROJECT MANAGEMENT

             WP2: COMMUNICATION & DISSEMINATION

             WP3:  BENCHMARK ANS RIS3 BASED SMART FACTORY MODEL DEFINITION

             WP4: IMPROVING THE COMMON KNOWLEDGE BASE
