SMARTER-SI: Smarter Access to Manufacturing for Systems IntegrationUp one level
In order to provide access to manufacturing capabilities for SMEs, several European Research and Technology organisations (RTOs) joined efforts and formed SMARTER-SI.
The ultimate goal of this project is to test a new concept for small lot production, which we call the Cooperative Foundry Concept. During previous research, all RTOs have built components / parts of systems, i.e. building blocks, which are available and characterised by their high Technology Readiness Level (TRL).
The idea is now to combine these building blocks in so-called Application Experiments (AEs), thereby creating innovative Smart Systems which serve SMEs' needs.

Two of the new products facilitated by the SMARTER-SI project are described as „Success Stories“ in the brochure „Enhancing the digital Transformation of the European Industry“ issued by the European Commission in June 2016.
The Innovation Action Smarter-SI has received funding from the
European Community’s Programme HORIZON 2020 under GA No. 644596,
and from the Swiss State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation (SERI) under contract number 15.0085.
