Today I participated in the IV Interregional Thematic Seminar organized by the International Center for Advanced Materials and Raw Materials of Castile and Leon (ICAMCyL). TheInterreg Europe SMARTY Project partnerswill share experiences on national and regional initiatives related to Digital Innovation and Skills in Industry 4.0.
This seminar is organized to foster interregional cooperation and learning, and we have been invited to showcase our deepint platform; one of the many success stories of the AIR Institute and the BISITE Research Group. I also gave a talk about ” Innovation methodologies and best practices in Industry 4.0 for SMEs”.
We also presented some projects that we are developing at the AIR Institute, among them Expand IntelWines which is supported by the European initiative EXPAND SmartAgriHubs. It is based on the development and implementation of new artificial intelligence techniques in the production process of a winery, to support decision making and improve food safety.
The SMARTY Project of Interreg Europe is an ambitious initiative looking to address the main challenges that hinder the dissemination of Industry 4.0 solutions and their enabling potential in the European SME ecosystem. One of the main objectives is to increase investment in research and innovation in the identified sectors and technologies through smart specialization among small and medium-sized enterprises.
Major companies and institutions have also participated in the event, including CENTIC, Technological Center of Information and Communication Technologies of the Region of Murcia, the Institute for Business Competitiveness of Castilla y León (ICE), University of Florence, Center of Textile Excellence, the Chamber of Commerce of Slovenia, Gate 4.0, IDiA Cluster, Future Industry Platform, Lapland University of Applied Sciences, i2CAT, UNIMOS Alliance, ICAMCyL Foundation.
This has been an excellent opportunity to learn about, showcase and propose solutions related to innovation and Industry 4.0 in Europe.
