The IoT4Industry project seeks to support EU growth and competitiveness through the development of a new cross-sectoral industrial value chain based on the integration and use of IoT and related components (Digital Security, Cloud Computing, Big Data, Artificial Intelligence…) into manufacturing tools, machines and robots, through the cross-border collaboration between SMEs and other RDI actors of the ICT and advanced manufacturing sectors.


The goal is to connect and encourage collaboration between relevant innovation actors from the industrial and IoT sectors to:

  • Modernize the production capabilities in European industry, specifically in SMEs
  • Increase the competitiveness of companies through more efficient production.
  • Answer to local needs with the help of vouchers and fully meet demands.


It is organized on 4 steps (Work Package):

  • Provide large information support to SMEs throughout Europe having shown their interest in the matter of smart manufacturing
  • Provide them training
  • Provide them matchmaking action (collaborative projects between manufacturers and ICT companies)
  • Provide them a support to develop products, processes….


To achieve its objectives, IoT4Industry project consortium mobilises for the duration of the project and on a regular basis a community of six experts from either the ICT or the manufacturing sectors. The Advisory Board members provide further expertise (external vision, opinion and feedback) in IoT4Industry strategies and specifically in the support to SMEs.
