The 1st Open Call Full Proposals from Better Factory Webinar held on June 3rd, 2021, started with a brief introduction on our initiative. Followed by a description of our value proposition for the manufacturing ecosystem and the challenges that we aim to tackle in order to bring up innovation and help to explore new horizons in technology.

Who can join the Better Factory initiative? 

  • Manufacturing companies – SMEs and MidCaps – that want to start the digitization journey.
  • Designers and artists who are willing to dive into the manufacturing world.
  • Tech suppliers looking to test innovative technologies with low financial risk.

🏭Through this collaboration, Better Factory aims to minimize the impact on production cost and to create more value by reducing waste, energy, and other production resources; optimizing factory logistics; using robots to support workers and production preplanning and simulation.

Better Factory offers a Knowledge Transfer Program for beneficiaries. It will launch 2 Open Calls to select 8 (First open call) + 8 (Second open call) experiments that will be supported to design new product lines and deploy automation intra-factory solutions. Furthermore, you can receive up to 200K EUR in equity-free funding!
