7 – Research & Development activities
At EU level:
Several industrial projects on EU level (and beyond), following up of successfully finished European funded (MANUFUTURE related) projects have been carried out.
At national level:
Several projects in the program lines “FIT-IT” (BMVIT) and “Factory of the future” (FFG), highly related to MANUFUTURE are currently in operation or have been carried out recently.
Numerous industrial projects, partially as follow up of successfully finished national or European funded projects have been carried out.
Strategic Research Agenda (SRA) is being developed.
In the current phase, MANUFUTURE.at priorises topics of EU-SRA and fills those of them which are most relevant to Austria with live and prepares a position paper – rather than building an own full SRA.
