LINPRA is currently a partner in 4 EIT Manufacturing projects, in which we invite members of association and other stakeholders to participate.
Gazelle Accelerator (Accelerate and grade-up existing technology-based companies (SMEs and Start-ups) to create European Gazelles): The project aims to accelerate the transformation of European industry by encouraging large companies to work with innovative start-ups. The technologies of some companies can be valuable to others. The aim of the project is to find out what challenges companies face, what their needs are, and what solutions of one company can be applied by other companies. Representatives of both large companies and new companies / start-ups will meet at a joint event.
ManuLearn (Learning through manufacturing challenges): The main goal of the project is to strengthen innovative capacity to help meet future production challenges. The project presents a program in which students, researchers and companies will collaborate, share skills and develop solutions to industrial production challenges. Decisions will be generated by academia (through applied research) or industry (through best practice success stories).
DigTrafoRIS (Digital Transformation in RIS): The project addresses the challenges posed by Industry 4.0 – the need to strengthen the innovative capacity of countries, especially in the field of digitalisation of production. The various digitization technologies used in smaller European countries are often different from those used by larger companies in more advanced European countries. The aim of the project is to increase the level of digitization in Europe, so direct tools for the digitization of business processes will be offered through tools such as questionnaires and work with digital innovation centres and other related infrastructures.
RIS HUBS (EIT Manufacturing RIS Hubs): The EIT Regional Innovation Scheme (EIT RIS) is a regional innovation scheme for EU Member States and Associated Countries in Europe that are small and medium-sized innovators and in which the EIT innovation communities have few or no partners. The aim of the project is to set up centres in these countries to facilitate cooperation with the EIT’s innovation communities.
LINPRA also coordinates the EIT initiative in Lithuania:
