Welcome to the “IoTisation”of the European industry : broadering smart production and prosperity
On 26th April was launched the IoT4Industry project in Sophia Antipolis, France. Also called “Towards smarter means of production in European manufacturing through the use of the Internet of Things technologies”, aims to enable European manufacturing SMEs to integrate the use of IoT and related components to enhance their productivity, profitability, innovation capacities and keep them competitive on the global scale.

Alpes Côte d’Azur region and IoT4Industry partners
The project in the framework of the European H2020-INNOSUP-2016-2017 acts as a “catalyzer”of a new industrial value chain: it will support SMEs interested in the matter of smart manufacturing providing training and matchmaking actions and selecting “champions” SMEs to finance their IoT cross-border and cross-sectorial collaborative projects .
IoT4Industry consortium includes 3 ICT clusters [The French Secured Communicating Solution cluster (SCS) the german microTEC Südwest (mTSW) and DSP Valley in Belgium ] including 2 ESCA Gold Labels and 3 Advanced Manufacturing clusters (the Italian MESAP, the 1rench Mont-Blanc Industries (MBI), Pôle MecaTech (PMT) in Belgium and one technology center in United Kingdom (MTC Manufacturing Technology Centre): they aim at bringing to an upper level the development of the new value chain of smart manufacturing, increasing the efficiency of the production if possible without moving the production to low-cost countries, that is maximizing the impact of the “IoTisation” of industrial SMEs and contribute to a more prosperous Europe.
