BIFOCAlps is an international research project co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund through the Interreg Alpine Space programme. It bases on the “Factory of the Future” (FoF) paradigm, an initiative of the European Commission. Its objective is "boosting innovation in Factory of the Future value chain" and aims to enhance long-term sustainability of FoF practices and technologies, to create added value for competitiveness of manufacturing sector and to establish a standardised impact indicators system that allows to evaluate performance of FoF adoption and innovation patterns in line with smart specialisation strategies. The project interlinks human resources, technology and information equally to establish more performant and more efficient but also more intelligent, self-managing and autonomous manufacturing systems: cyber-physical systems, smart factories, service factories.
