Global-leading smart manufacturing through digital platforms, cross-cutting features and skilled workforce
The ConnectedFactories 2 project will develop a common and structured understanding of key enablers and cross-cutting factors concerning the deployment of digital technologies in manufacturing. It will identify pathways to the industrial take-up of digital technologies and digital platforms by considering legacy systems, industrial requirements and challenges. Moreover, it will match skills transfer offering with skills demand across Europe. Using state-of-the-art case studies it will show how key enablers and cross-cutting factors are addressed along those pathways. The project will engage with research and industrial actors in both European and local ecosystems, not only to validate findings and results, but also to generate a broad awareness about the key enablers and cross-cutting factors, about the pathways and in particular about inspiring cases that include SMEs.
