Our Ambition

EIT Manufacturing is an Innovation Community within the European Institute of Innovation & Technology (EIT) – that connects the leading manufacturing actors in Europe. Fueled by a strong interdisciplinary and trusted community, we will add unique value to European products, processes, services – and inspire the creation of globally competitive and sustainable manufacturing.

The manufacturing industry is a global base for prosperity and key to Europe’s economic, social and environmental sustainability. Manufacturing is a main driver of industrial innovation, job creation and growth for the European society. It stands for over 2.1 million manufacturing enterprises in Europe, providing over 32 million jobs, which corresponds to 16% of the total EU working population, including approximately 13 million jobs in the growing high-tech manufacturing industry and in 2016, the share of EU-28 GDP originated by manufacturing was 16.1% (Eurostat, GDP percentage of total, industry breakdowns, 10.01.2018), corresponding to a total turnover of EUR 7.11 trillion (European Commission, Factories of the Future Manufacturing in Horizon 2020 and beyond, 2017).

EIT Manufacturing will establish an innovation community and build a network of ecosystems where people can acquire skills and find opportunities; and where innovators are able to attract investors and accede venture capital.

For that purpose, EIT Manufacturing brings together 50 European leading partners from business, education and research, from 17 countries.

EIT Manufacturing’s approach is designed to immediately and forcefully address specific economic and societal challenges, leveraging opportunities to maximise the impact for a successful European manufacturing.

Our vision is that the leading manufacturing innovation is Made by Europe.

Our mission is to bring manufacturing actors of Europe together in innovation ecosystems that add unique value to European products, processes, services – and inspire creation of globally competitive and sustainable manufacturing.

To tackle main challenges of European manufacturing, EIT Manufacturing has defined six strategic objectives:

Excellent manufacturing skills and talents: adding value through an upskilled workforce and engaged students. Efficient manufacturing innovation ecosystems: adding value through creating ecosystems for innovation, entrepreneurship and business transformation focused on innovation hotspots.
Full digitalisation of manufacturing: adding value through digital solutions and platforms that connect value networks globally. Customer-driven manufacturing: adding value through agile and flexible manufacturing that meets global personalised demand.
Socially sustainable manufacturing: adding value through safe, healthy, ethical and socially sustainable production and products. Environmentally sustainable manufacturing: adding value by making industry greener and cleaner.

Our Programmes

We are currently experiencing the fourth industrial revolution, which brings us new challenges and opportunities. EIT Manufacturing’s aim is not only to adapt to this global revolution, but to lead it. To do so, it will deliver nine powerful programmes that cover the Knowledge Triangle — Education, Innovation and Business Creation — for Added-Value Manufacturing:

Education: “Empower”, “Connect” and “Engage” talents and workforce
Innovation: “Launch”, “Develop” and “Grow” innovations
Business Creation: “Create”, “Accelerate” and “Transform” businesses

The programmes will address these challenges in a unique way:

1.  Adapt to exponential technological progress. Success is no longer determined by a narrow technology focus, but by a clear vision and the capacity to adapt.
2.  Make manufacturing a powerhouse for social impact.
3.  Overcome value network fragmentation in Europe.
4.  Transform knowledge into value more efficiently.

Our Flagships

EIT Manufacturing defined four Flagships as prime demonstrations of the community’s ability to solve complex challenges, while delivering high societal and industrial impact. EIT Manufacturing’s flagships are:

People and Robots for Sustainable Work Additive Manufacturing for Full Flexibility Zero-defect Manufacturing and Circular Economy Platforms for Digitalised Value Networks
Industrial robots, capable of collaborating and interacting with humans are key enabling technologies to simultaneously achieve human well-being and manufacturing performance. Additive Manufacturing of multiple material combinations enables personalised products and advanced servitization, meeting economic and environmental challenges. Digitalisation of zero-defect manufacturing increases the efficiency of industrial processes. Our programes will boost technical advancement and shifts in skills, mindsets an behaviour, to innovate and responsible production patterns. Platforms and integrator companies are key enablers to European Manufacturing innovation. It will support manufacturers’ use of digital platforms integrators to create high-value manufacturing in value networks across Europe.

These Flagships add value to European manufacturing and address multiple strategic objectives. All flagships involve several programmes that cover a complete range of activities, training and up-skilling, and novel business models.

EIT Community

The European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) is an independent EU body set up to empower innovators to turn their best ideas into products, services and jobs for Europe. It was created in 2008 to drive Europe’s ability to innovate. As an integral part of Horizon2020, the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation 2014-2020, it is a unique EU initiative, the only that fully integrates business, education and research. The Institute supports the development of dynamic pan-European partnerships among leading universities, research labs and companies – the Innovation Communities. Each one focuses on a specific global challenge and, so far, eight of them have been created by the EIT addressing the areas of climate, digital, health, energy, food, raw materials, manufacturing and urban mobility.
