IoT4Industry 2 call: who won the challenge?!?
We are very proud to announce the results of the IoT4Industry 2nd (and final) call for collaborative projects ! The call closed on 11th June 2019 with 96 proposals were submitted in that round, an increase of 80% in comparison to its 1st iteration!
Proponents from 15 European Member States and associated countries (Israel, Switzerland and Turkey) submitted their projects ideas. 83 proposals passed the 1st eligibility check : to be noted, 24 proposals came from France, 23 from Italy, 12 from Germany, 8 Belgian, 7 from the United Kingdom, and 9 form other countries.
17 vertical sectors are targeted by proponents within their projects, most notably metal working, automotive, aerospace, defence and food & beverage.
These proposals are currently evaluated by independent experts, results being made public at the end of August, the selected projects starting in September . This second batch of projects will receive an overall grant of 1,5 million Euros.
This success is notably due to the activities led by the partners: 14 training sessions, webinars, regional workshops engaging with 850 participants were crucial for achieving these results to change the company culture, trying to reduce the lack of knowledge, fostering the awareness and skills to finally help SMEs to receive the benefits of the digitalization.
