GrowIn 4.0 – Industry 4.0 for SMEs
Growing into Industry 4.0 – Accelerate growth in manufacturing SMEs
The manufacturing industry is very important for the North Sea Region economy and remains a driver for growth. The Interreg North Sea Region (NSR) GrowIn 4.0 project aims to address the common challenges manufacturing SMEs throughout the North Sea Region face today, and the opportunities they bring. Many of these SMEs are moving toward the fourth industrial revolution – Industry 4.0 – which is regarded as the “industry of tomorrow”.
If the manufacturing industry in the NSR is to remain competitive, we need to capture the potential for productivity and growth that Industry 4.0 offers. There is a profound need for experience-based and smart gathering of efficient methods, tools and knowledge to guide SMEs in their transformation towards Industry 4.0.
GrowIn 4.0 aims to build strong competences and tools in the participating regions for the benefit of manufacturing SMEs. The approach is to establish a strong partnership that pools knowledge on the manufacturing industry and Industry 4.0. The resulting collections of new or improved methods and tools, developed in transnational interaction with SMEs, will be universal within different areas of the North Sea Region.
