Overview

Overview

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.
