Projects in focus
Pro-Factory-Plus

The EUREKA umbrella Pro-Factory-Plus focuses on advanced manufacturing technology as a key enabling technology for the competitiveness of European industry. To accomplish that, Pro-Factory-Plus provides an application-oriented, bottom-up, collaborative R&D support mechanism primarily focused on innovative production processes and systems that can produce added value products and related services.

Europe’s major manufacturing industries have successfully adapted their business operations to the new globalised environment. Many of their R&D activities have been funded by the large and ambitious European Union Framework Programme. SMEs in traditional and established industry have found it more difficult to take part in these larger structures and often look for more bottom-up funding instruments.
