Advanced digital industrial technology, known as Industry 4.0, identifies a strategy aimed at a transition towards future ways of production. Industry 4.0 paradigm allows to gather and analyze data across manufacturing facilities and machinery, makes manufacturing processes more efficient and flexible, increases productivity and strengthens industrial growth.
A necessary condition for the European productive sector to be at the global forefront of technology, ensuring job creation and sustainable growth, is to have access to innovative, entrepreneurial, highly skilled research cross-disciplinary engineers in the fields of production engineering and digital manufacturing technologies.
In reply to these needs, DIGIMAN4.0 ITN will provide world excellent research training to 15 ESRs (Early Stage Researchers) in the field of digital manufacturing technologies for Industry 4.0 production.
The implementation of the DIGIMAN4.0 project lies within the biggest EU Research and Innovation programme Horizon 2020 (2014 - 2020).
