Expected Results:

  • Set-up and operate a HPC/Cloud testbed for the project for helping manufacturing companies to facilitate cost-effective distributed and localized production for manufacturing SMEs
  • Establish collaborations and synergies with DIH

Relevance for EGI:

Reinforce collaboration with SMEs (in the manufacturing domain) and create synergies with the DIHs across Europe to attract national and regional funding, evangelise the manufacturing stakeholders, and enable manufacturing SMEs to co-create and experiment with digital innovations before investing.
