EFFRA Launches Public Consultation for Work Programme Preparation
EFFRA has launched a public consultation on the ‘Factories of the Future’ work programme 2018-2019-2020.
The public consultation is part of EFFRA’s preparations for strategic discussions with the European Commission concerning the final ‘Factories of the Future’ work programme under Horizon 2020.
Representatives of industry, research and innovation and academia are presented with a unique opportunity to provide their views on the future priorities of the ‘Factories of the Future’ programme.
The European Factories of the Future Research Association (EFFRA) is an industry-driven association promoting the development of new and innovative production technologies.
EFFRA’s key objective is to promote pre-competitive research on production technologies within the European Research Area by engaging in a public-private partnership with the European Union called 'Factories of the Future'.
‘Factories of the Future’ brings private and public resources together by launching market-orientated cross-border projects through a progressive research and innovation agenda. These projects produce demonstrators and models which are applied in a wide range of manufacturing sectors.
