More about the project

MIND4MACHINES aims to facilitate cross-sectoral and cross-border support for manufacturing SMEs to adopt the latest digital technologies for the transformation towards smarter, greener and more resource-efficient manufacturing. This will be done in a systemic approach that promotes the creation of cross-border and cross-sector ecosystems, new emerging industries and/or empowerment in the target regions, with the ultimate goal of establishing large-scale demonstrators to test a range of digital solutions that will enable the manufacturing SMEs involved in the project to address both digitalisation and industrial sustainability challenges.
