I4MS - ICT Innovation for Manufacturing SMEs - I4MS frontpage

Project: ICT Innovation for Manufacturing SMEs (I4MS) - Horizon 2020 funded project - Duration: 2017 to 2020
 

I4MS is a program promoted by the EC to expand and boost digital innovation among manufacturing SMEs in Europe along four key technology areas:

  • digital design for additive manufacturing
  • cyber-physical systems and Internet of Things
  • robotics, and
  • HPC Cloud-based modelling, simulations and analytics services

The I4MS initiative is currently in its third phase, which started in September 2017 with a budget of €34 million. Under Phase Three, SMEs can:

  • apply for technological support in Robotics, HPC, Additive Manufacturing, CPS and IoT
  • apply for funding opportunities and technical assistance—geared towards supporting digital transformation in companies and improving skills of employees
  • learn from best practices—including success stories to inspire SMEs in their bid to become more competitive and opportunities to connect with successful peers
  • access skills observatory—offering training to improve digitisation skills
  • gain recognition during Disruptors awards—a selection and recognition of the best digitisation cases
  • learn from acceleration program—offering training support to raise funds and matchmake with peers
  • interact via an online community—that provides opportunities to engage with peers

DTI is particularly engaged via the partnering with MADE on the Clustering I4MS: joint brand visibility and skills Work Package, which aims to:

  • provide the I4MS initiative, the I4MS innovation actions, and technologies with visibility through programs across Europe like the I4MS Disruptors Award
  • facilitate communication and community development across the DSM ecosystems
  • aid in providing and supervising the provision of content by partners and users on I4MS technologies, challenges, best practice, calls, funding, networking opportunities.

Core partners include Funding Box (FBOX)—project coordinator; DTI—a leading Research and Technology institution; MADE—a leading Digital Innovation Hub in advanced manufacturing in European, Mobile World Capital (MWC)—an organizer of the world’s largest event for digital Industries; FIWARE Foundation (FIF)—a major representative of DSM ecosystems in Europe; and Galacian Innovation Agency (GAIN)—facilitates the promotion of innovation policies to public administrations.
