How to become a Factory of the Future - the way of BIFOCAlps

The BIFOCAlps project (11.2016 - 11.2018)

The BIFOCAlps Project is synonym for “Boosting Innovation in Factory of the Future Value Chain in the Alps” and started in November 2016. Eleven partners from five Alpine countries cooperatively research about the common challenge: due to globalization, many small and medium enterprises in the manufacturing sectors are not as competitive as wished and – additionally – are confronted with emerging Industry 4.0 and Factory of the Future technologies.


The BIFOCAlps project aims to boost collaboration and synergies among main actors of Alpine region innovation system for a sustainable, smart and competitive development of the value chain of manufacturing sector towards FoF practices.


In order to achieve these aims, BIFOCAlps project partners actively collaborate to deepen activities related to study & map the Manufacturing Sector within the Alpine region. They validate a methodology for setting up an indicator system setting to identify the impact of Factory of the Future technologies and practices adoption at various levels as well as to develop strategic policy recommendations.
