The project began in summer 2017 and will run for three years, with a total of 1.8m euros worth of funding from the Interreg North Sea Region (2017-2020). It will establish strong partnerships through which the main challenges and solutions of implementing and exploring Industry 4.0 will be investigated. The results of these new or improved methods and tools will be applied within different areas of the North Sea Region.
