INforM. Innovation Framework for Challenge Oriented Intelligent Manufacturing
Industry 4.0 introduces intelligent solutions to the manufacturing industry, turning it into a “smart factory”. The process holds huge potential but also considerable challenges for educational systems and industry. In the context of the changes brought by Industry 4.0, a lot of enterprises, especially those of small and medium size, are not capable of remaining competitive on the market.
The project offers a solution – creating a cross-sectorial Innovation Support Digital Framework to support small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) in the digital transformation process. The Framework develops and implements customised smart engineering and educational solutions responding to the actual needs of the enterprises around the Baltic Sea to ensure their competitiveness and productivity.
The project aims at creating a cross-sectorial integrated Innovation Support Digital Framework for the mechatronics and mechanical engineering SMEs to support companies in the digital transformation process.
Project INforM maps challenges in the regions, the regions’ specific competencies, and existing best collaboration practices to answer to the needs of manufacturing, provide tailored engineering, educational and consultancy support, assistance to introduce new digital solutions, and analysis of their performance afterward.
