Cooperative Foundry Concept

Up one level

In order to provide access to manufacturing capabilities for SMEs, several European Research and Technology Organisations (RTOs) joined efforts and formed SMARTER-SI. 

The ultimate goal of this project is to test a new concept for small lot production, which we call the Cooperative Foundry Concept. During previous research, all RTOs have built components / parts of systems, i.e. building blocks, which are available and characterised by their high Technology Readiness Level (TRL).

The idea is now to combine these building blocks in so-called Application Experiments (AEs), thereby creating innovative Smart Systems which serve SMEs’ needs.
