3rd HIA open call for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises

In scope of the HIA project, funded by the European Comission and coordinated by TECOS with the help of SRIP FoF and Ministry of Economic Development and Technology, we are launching an open call, where we invite companies interested in winning a 50.000 EUR voucher for upgrading their production cells. This is the third and final open call within this project.

The High-Impact Action (HIA) consists of the piloting of a “transformative mechanism”. HIA has a focus on development of a physical and virtual platform for piloting and demonstrating modular and reconfigurable cells across various industries. When complete this platform will bring together equipment, resources, expertise, people from a broad range of organisations (research and technology organisations, centres of excellence, SMEs, corporates, etc.) specialising in industry 4.0 development and deployment.

The prior HIA call for service providers is now followed by the third HIA call, dedicated to awarding vouchers to 5 companies. The call-winning SMEs will be able to use the vouchers to pay for the services of projects service providers which will enable them to upgrade their production cells to be more efficient, reconfigurable, interconnected and modular. The purpose of this is to draw lessons from individual cases and extract specifications for a forementioned physical platform.
