Adaptive and resilient production and supply chain methods and solutions are of urgent need during the current pandemic situation therefore vital medical supplies and equipment research and production is of high importance.
The CO-VERSATILE project was awarded to the consortium led by the Hungarian science institute SZTAKI, through European Union’s Horizon 2020 emergency program to combat COVID. This project aims to enhance the versatility of the European manufacturing industry, with a particular focus on vital medical devices and protective equipment. By this project, the production capacities can be changed within 48 hours if an extremely large amount of medical equipment or protective equipment is required. Another goal is to create the Digital Technopole, an online marketplace, thus the developments and solutions can be shared with other manufacturers all over Europe.
The 21-member consortium includes German Fraunhofer IGD (Institute for Computer Graphics Research) and IML (Institute for Material Flow and Logistics) research centers, EIT Manufacturing, Leibniz University and the University of Westminster, as well as several European manufacturers and Digital Agents and Innovation centers.
innomine is a vital member of the consortium, with access to an alliance of suppliers, universities and research institutes, small and medium-sized enterprises and investors. Our main tasks was to promote the most desirable solutions on the market by organizing a Europe-wide networking event and matchmaking event, SME Resilience Days.
