Our Programmes

We are currently experiencing the fourth industrial revolution, which brings us new challenges and opportunities. EIT Manufacturing’s aim is not only to adapt to this global revolution, but to lead it. To do so, it will deliver nine powerful programmes that cover the Knowledge Triangle — Education, Innovation and Business Creation — for Added-Value Manufacturing:

The programmes will address these challenges in a unique way:

  1. Adapt to exponential technological progress. Success is no longer determined by a narrow technology focus, but by a clear vision and the capacity to adapt.
  2. Make manufacturing a powerhouse for social impact.
  3. Overcome value network fragmentation in Europe.
  4. Transform knowledge into value more efficiently.
