Network for Empowering People in Added-Value Manufacturing Systems and Technologies – Phase I

M-NEST-I is conceived as the first phase of a larger activity aiming to establish a robust and sustainable structure to host all types of activities that targets the empowerment of people building the European manufacturing community of the future, from young students to teachers and researchers, from apprentices to technical managers. The idea is to create from scratch a distributed Teaching and Learning Factory building on complementary Innovation Hotspots prioritized by each Factory Unit, using the respective manufacturing clusters as test beds and pilot demonstrators, and strategically capitalise from and create synergies with ongoing Key Complementary Activities of each partner and its facilitating layer, as well as with local educational programmes. ‘Manufacturing Technologies for Materials and Processes Hybridization’ will be the technology focus to trigger this process within M-NEST-I, based on the current high industrial challenge and related learning needs.
