The European Commission has launched a project to establish a European Advanced Manufacturing Support Centre to help SMEs assess the possibility of adopting advanced manufacturing solutions and transforming their organisation towards next-generation factories with more competitive, modern and sustainable production.
The European ADMA Support Centre will focus on facilitating the access of SMEs to technological, organisational, financial as well as business model expertise available within the consortium and their broader ecosystem.
As the technological expertise of a downstream SME is often quite limited, they often do not exactly know what knowledge, services and equipment is required for their demand.
ADMA will therefore centralize the SMEs´ request and offer a personal contact with Factories of the Future advisors.
The study started in June 2018 and will be conducted in a 36 month period.
The consortium, including both technological and non-technological partners, welcome organizations willing to become Advisor or Coaches adopting ADMA methodology to support SMEs aiming to become “Factories of the Future”.
Advisor and Coaches are key partners in the development of the Transformation and Implementation Plan of the selected SMEs.
ADMA consortium supports these organizations with specific trainings to introduce the methodology.
AFIL and TPLJ attended the 1st ADMA Training in Eindhoven, last 23-24-25 April 2019. A second Training will be held in Darmstadt (Germany) on the 21-22-23 of May 2019.
Organizations willing to become Advisors or Coaches for the European ADMA Support Centre are invited to contact the national contact point or the ADMA organizations.
