The INTERREG – ADRION Project Future 4.0: Results and Perspectives

Manufacturing Education and Training Governance Model for Industry 4.0 in the Adriatic-Ionian area


The INTERREG – ADRION project Future 4.0 has worked for three years and is now ready to present results and share outcomes. In particular, the project aimed to face the challenges brought about by the Fourth industrial revolution with a specific focus on the maritime, naval, and shipbuilding sector.

This sector – just like or even more than other manufacturing sectors – is affected by the progressive introduction in productive processes of cyber-physical systems, which combine traditional processes with artificial intelligence and which are tearing down the borders between the real world and the virtual one.

Adriatic – Ionian societies, industries, and economies are involved as well in this transformation, with effects on production, on relations between companies, and human capital development. To face these challenges, the project aimed to design an Industry 4.0 model to improve the competitiveness of the maritime and shipbuilding sector in two Italian regions (Veneto and Apulia), in Croatia, Greece, and Albania.
