Project description

Industry 4.0 (I4.0) is the next industrial revolution. Manufacturers are focussing on client-specifiec production and added-value products. In Germany 84% of the companies feel the pressure to digitize and 57% will significantly change their business model due to the digital revolution. Germany is world leader in the revolution. The project main objective is to close the gap between the region and Germany & other leading countries, by developing and demonstrating the necessary key technologies towards companies, in this way facilitating the conversion towards I4.0.
