Monitoring the uptake of Advanced Technologies in European Industry - the ATI project
On 11 May, the European Alliance Against Coronavirus was introduced to the ATI project, which monitors the uptake of Advanced Technologies in the European Industry.
Marta Batalla Masana from DG GROW, European Commission, gave an introduction into how the ATI project emerged from different GROW project and how it is a policy tool that plays an important role for the European industrial strategy. This monitoring tool is designed for industry representatives, policymakers, and academia, and follows 16 different advanced technologies.
Irene Magnani from European Government Consulting, IDC, shared insights into the systematic analysis that the ATI project offers. It shows that on average companies adopt between two and five technologies, and that the maturity of the technologies increases with the size of the company. Technologies of high uptake are solutions of connectivity, cloud, and advanced manufacturing, and security. On the ATI website, users can find sectoral watches, which focus on entrepreneurial activities and skills needs, and international reports on policy frameworks.
Els Van de Velde from Competitiveness & Innovation, IDEA Consult, presented the technology centre mapping, which shows the technological infrastructure in Europe. The technology centres offer services to SMEs, which include access to technology expertise and facilities for validation, pilot production and demonstration, proof of concept and lab testing, prototype development and testing, product validation and certification, and demonstrations. The mapping is still open and technology centres can register to appear on the map.
The morning sessions are open to everyone.
