The European Factories of the Future Research Association (EFFRA) is a strong and growing network of industrial, university, research and related stakeholders with a shared interest in transforming production technologies in Europe. EFFRA was established to shape, promote and support the implementation of the ‘Factories of the Future’ partnership and the Factories of the Future community. Currently, EFFRA is the official representative of the manufacturing research community engaged in the European Union’s ‘ Made in Europe partnership under the Horizon Europe framework programme.

Here’s a quick overview of our association!

Our members have the opportunity to be engaged in a creation and consultation programme to produce EFFRA’s strategic research multi-annual roadmap. Your organisation can also help us to identify the future priorities that are the basis for research call topics. On a regular basis, EFFRA brings together its diverse community through workshops and other members-only events. You can share your experiences and learn from other members, especially from the industrial companies, about the latest technologies and their plans for the future. Network building can also contribute to the formation of research consortia that take part in Horizon Europe competitions. Involvement in EFFRA helps to raise the profiles of your organisation via our online communication channels where we often promote members’ events and activities.
