Summary and objectives

MIND4MACHINES aims to facilitate the cross-sectoral and cross-border support needed by manufacturing SMEs to test and adopt the latest digital technologies for transformation towards smarter, greener and more resource-efficient manufacturing, aligned with the latest EU policies. This will be done in a systemic approach which will foster cross-border and cross-sectoral ecosystems creation, new emerging industries, and/or reinforcement in the targeted regions, with the final aim of establishing large-scale demonstrators to test a range of digital solutions which can allow manufacturing SMEs engaged within the project to meet both digitalisation and sustainability industry challenges.  

The large-scale demonstrators will be implemented by MIND4MACHINES thanks to:

  • Direct financial support through open calls in order to facilitate that SMEs – or groups SMEs and other stakeholders – develop, test and fine-tune solutions so they can bring successful innovations to the market, boosting the generation of new industrial value chains. The innovations tested, supported and scaled up within these open calls will be selected according to criteria based on the MIND4MACHINES Joint Strategic Agenda, a co-created guiding document establishing the main challenges and goals in the selected regions towards the transformation of manufacturing industries into digital, sustainable ones. This will ensure that the funded projects jointly contribute to the large-scale demonstrator objective, validating and scaling up new cross-sectoral and cross-regional value chains.
  • Tailored innovation and go-to-market accelerator programmes. MIND4MACHINES understands that investment sourcing is key to allow SMEs to undertake digital-based transition projects. This is why project partners will invest their resources into a series of activities (bootcamps, mentorship, e-learning, etc.) to train digital and manufacturing SMEs to detect, engage and obtain successfully the financial sources they need. This work line, complementary to the direct financial aid, will multiply the chances of success of the companies. Additionally, 4 Venture Capital firms have shown their interest in the project, willing to evaluate successful projects in a case-by-case basis.
  • Engaging clusters as key actors to foster cross-sectoral and cross-border new value chains. Clusters are regional innovation ecosystems with a great potential for the replication of new digitalisation solutions funded by MIND4MACHINES, reason why the project partners (already clusters and industry associations) will engage and evangelize other regional clusters to maximise the project’s impacts in Europe through dissemination activities and a specific MIND4MACHINES Programme.
