Project
GREENOVET is an international Project, comprising 18 European Partners (from Austria, Finland, North Macedonia and Portugal), co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union. The Project fosters the development of Vocational Education and Training (VET) Excellence in Green Innovation across Europe and through the establishment of Centres of Vocational Excellence (CoVEs) that will enable an innovative, inclusive and sustainable economy.
Project
A great challenge for the future lies in the transfer of Industry 4.0 expertise and technologies in small and medium sized enterprises (SME). Although the high potential of Industry 4.0 in SMEs, the main limit lies in a lack of concrete models for its implementation and application in small and medium enterprises. Thus, this research project titled “SME 4.0 - Smart Manufacturing and Logistics for SMEs in an X-to-order and Mass Customization Environment” aims to close this gap through the creation of an international and interdisciplinary research network. Identifying the needs and enablers for a smart and intelligent SME-Factory, creating adapted concepts and design solutions for SME production and logistics systems and developing suitable organisation and business models will be the main objectives of this research network. The research network includes partners from all over the world (Italy, Slovakia, Austria, Thailand, USA, India).
