Project Summary

The Naval Industry, Shipbuilding and the related supply chain in Adriatic-Ionian region are facing great challenges, looking toward the significant transformation of manufacturing industry, the Fourth Industrial Revolution, that involves the entire value chain process with effects on production, intercompany relations and human capital development and requires a new technology brush-ups.

The FUTURE 4.0 project developed an experimental methodology of knowledge transfer addressed to the companies operating in the sector, with the aim to support their transition toward Industry 4.0 and break barriers to innovation between university, center of research and enterprises.

Tools and models were designed and tested to strengthen competences, raise the awareness on technology needs and trends, and rethink the set of skills and abilities enabling the industrial transformation. Now it is time to effectively share them and contribute in this way to the competitiveness of the shipbuilding and logistics sectors and to their resilience in dealing with the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic.

In order to maximize the visibility of the project achievements, the new FUTURE 4.0 PLUS will implement actions for the valorization of the knowledge capital produced, making it widely available, particularly for companies and training institutions that are approaching the transition to a more green and digital dimension.

Looking towards the Factory of the Future concept, targeted workshops and events will be organized to address the issue of Industry 4.0 transformation from different perspectives, sharing research results, introducing further applications of learning tools, and reinforcing the Network established between academic and enterprises active in the Adriatic – Ionian region.

New communication content such as tutorial videos will be designed to illustrate the main aspects of the FUTURE 4.0 project and the practical and effective application of its knowledge transfer methodology. In addition, the relevant contents relating to the Technological Map developed will be highlighted. The most inspiring contributions and experiences emerged from the implementation of the Pilot Actions will be shared in a dedicated web area, where also the project analysis and researches, duly reviewed, will be at disposal for consultation.

Project Summary

We are witnessing the new significant transformation of manufacturing industry, the fourth industrial revolution and new digital age called Industry 4.0.

The shipbuilding industry and its related supply chain in Adriatic-Ionian region (EUSAIR) is facing great challenges and changes, being undeveloped and left behind with the urgent need to new technology brush ups. Shipyards are affected by the transformation of the entire value chain process involved in manufacturing industry with the effects on production, intercompany relations and human capital development.

The solution is to implement new technologies brought by the Industry 4.0 (innovation, advanced technologies, computerization, robotics processes, automation, digitalization...) by encouraging sustainable and better management of Blue Economy.

Future 4.0 project responds to the current challenges of the manufacturing industry of the shipyard and nautical logistic supply chain. The main objective of the project is to design a shared strategy to support SME’s towards technology 4.0. The project will design Smart Learning Model and implement local pilot actions in order to disseminate innovation as well as knowledge management solutions in over 100 enterprises across Italy, Croatia, Albania and Greece.

The base for designing a suitable Industry 4.0 Smart Learning Model is using the known technique to help manage front part of innovation process (Technological Road-mapping) and using new strategic planning tools to help envision various futures and creating more vibrant organizations (Foresight tools).

The results will be the foundation for designing of a knowledge, competence and innovative skills training and learning hub - FUTURE 4.0 PLATFORM by applying Triple Helix Approach - the set of interactions between academia, industry and governments.

The FUTURE 4.0 Smart Learning Model will experiment the approach of the knowledge trasfer for innovation, by activating testing activities of:
1. Awareness e.g. of the main technological megatrends,
2. Acquisition of knowledge and competence,
3. Transformation, applied innovation of products, processes and logistics of the shipyard sector and its supply chain with a view to Industry 4.0.

The aim of the experimentation is the upskilling and re-skilling of professional profiles in order to enhance employability within the shipbuilding industry.
