Connect

Create the Guided Learning Platform (GLP), the most ambitious learning platform in the manufacturing sector. It combines learning-related facilities, open access to digital learning content and tailor-made learning paths. Create Digital Learning Nuggets, module combinations tailored to each individual learner’s journey.

Interact with Learning/Teaching Factories, by interlinking learners to each other, facilities and content.

Engage

Engage Society, to provide opportunities and get first-hand impressions of industrial and research establishments. Engage Pupils, the young talents that are vital as future workforce.

Cross-Industry Engagement, to promote fertilisation and networking across industries and to establish communities of practice.

Innovation

The EIT Manufacturing innovation programmes will bring new technologies to the market and develop new value chains around hotspots.

These will maximise impacts by rapid identification and early stimulation of innovation hotspots, which are defined as situations where enabling technologies can solve complex manufacturing problems and add substantial value and significantly contribute to industry transformation.

Launch

Identify future trends, emerging technologies or disruptive technology combinations that have strong potential, through the Enabling Technologies and Customer Radar, a powerful digital tool for technology foresight and business intelligence that provides solid information to launch innovation hotspots. Select and prioritise Innovation Hotspots, through the European Manufacturing (Open) Innovation Platform (EMIP) that ensures all sides of the knowledge triangle are considered.
