Factory 4.0 and circular economy
Routes lead us back to the financial crisis of 2007/2008 and forced the European Commission to re-think its strategy. Large companies, which were recognized as systemically important, received a lot of support on national-level initiatives in the past decades. For the big players, it was a quite comfortable position, but vice versa for SMEs it was almost not possible to get support (they won't fit in the criteria "too big to fail" or systemically important) as the public promotion of SMEs from the competitive perspective is inexplicable for politicians and other parties.
The "job motors" of the nations and the EU were forgotten and left to fend for themselves. Small side fact: 99.5 % of all companies in Germany are SMEs! Lucky that the wind of change blew and is still blowing! The EUC established several funding programs to support, facilitate and connect SMEs and institutions to develop new innovations, skills, and further capacities required in Europe.
ICT Innovation for Manufacturing SMEs
The I4MS initiative was founded on the basis of this momentum and has continued to grow. In the past decade and in the future, I4MS is and will be the umbrella initiative for research projects (e. g. cloudSME project & CloudFlow) and innovation actions (e. g. CloudiFacturing, DIGITbrain & Pulsate) in the area of Information and Communication Technologies for manufacturing.
