A network of Digital Innovation Hubs supporting manufacturing SMEs to become more competitive through robotics and digital technologies!

Why TRINITY?

There is a huge opportunity for manufacturers to adopt new robotics and IoT technologies and to improve productivity and competitiveness. New robotic technologies are highly flexible and cost-effective for nearly every size of company, including SMEs. SMEs need to embrace these technologies to maintain efficiency and create jobs. A key barrier to implementation is often a lack of skills and understanding around how to best profit from these technologies.

TRINITY aims to improve the agility and innovation capability of European manufacturing companies. It aims to bring together both the research and industrial community in Europe with the objective of developing and helping all sized companies to implement and benefit from new digital and robotic technologies.

There is a huge opportunity for manufacturers to adopt new robotics and IoT technologies and to improve productivity and competitiveness. New robotic technologies are highly flexible and cost-effective for nearly every size of company, including SMEs. SMEs need to embrace these technologies to maintain efficiency and create jobs. A key barrier to implementation is often a lack of skills and understanding around how to best profit from these technologies.

TRINITY aims to improve the agility and innovation capability of European manufacturing companies. It aims to bring together both the research and industrial community in Europe with the objective of developing and helping all sized companies to implement and benefit from new digital and robotic technologies.

Trinity will CREATE a sustainable network of DIHs acting as a one-stop-shop for companies to get access to digital and robotic technologies as well as technical and other services, such as training, funding or match-making.

The project will PROVIDE a critical mass of use cases in collaboration with industry to demonstrate novel robot technologies that can contribute to increase the agility of production processes in relevant industrial environments across different sectors.

TRINITY will CREATE a digital access point to facilitate collaboration, networking and disseminate information and knowledge to the wider robotics research community and industry in Europe.

FUNDING OPPORTUNITIES

The initial demonstrators will serve as reference implementation for two rounds of open calls for proposals, where companies with agile production needs and sound business plans will be supported (financially and technically) by TRINITY to carry out experiments in industrial environments. A minimum of 30 demonstrators will be implemented through the calls, which will be launched in 2019 and 2020. Calls will be open for three months after their publication and each demonstrator can get up to €300,000 in funding.

Follow us and keep track on the OPEN CALL publication!
