BETTER FACTORY – Grow your manufacturing business

Hybrid lean-agile manufacturing systems are emerging as smart approaches that can connect industry with cyber-physical systems. They can also support the manufacturing of new and personalised products. The EU-funded Better Factory project will create a network of artists and manufacturing small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to collaborate in the development of such products. The artists will analyse the deep knowledge within the manufacturing SMEs and support them in diversifying their product portfolio to meet new market demands. The project will also provide state-of-the-art technology for SMEs to maximise their production capacity. A portfolio of 16 cross-border Application Experiments by 48 SMEs selected through 2 competitive Open Calls will test the SME-artist collaboration and other services.
