Welcome to EU H2020 vF Interoperation suppoRting buSiness innovaTion (FIRST) consortium

The FIRST consortium is a competitive consortium with large know-how and expertise in complex software systems and manufacturing automation. The research base of Bournemouth, Groningen, Roma, Shanghai, and Modena will be used as a foundation for innovations to contribute to virtual interoperation of smart manufacturing in the area of Factory of the Future/Manufacturing 2.0 to improve the competitiveness of our industrial partners and sustainability of Europe manufacturing sector. Within this research programme, 6 industrial researchers will get the opportunity to gather knowledge in academia while 22 academic researchers (six at Bournemouth University, four at University of Groningen, five at Uniroma, three at SSPU and four at Unimore) will absorb knowledge in industries.

The consortium will provide new knowledge for GK, an enterprise software vendor and KM, a manufacturing software vendor, inform newer training in the area of big data, cloud computing to both GK and KM, and promote innovation, while the academic partners will translate their research to facilitate better understanding virtual factories.

The project “vF Interoperation suppoRting buSiness innovaTion” (FIRST) provides new technology and methodologies to describe manufacturing assets; to compose and integrate existing services into collaborative virtual manufacturing processes, and to deal with the evolution of changes.

MSCA RISE CALL

Marie Skłodowska-Curie Research and Innovation Staff Exchange Call (MSCA RISE) which opened on December 4th. The Research Executive Agency (REA) has prepared a video (a short version and a long version) to illustrates how Research and Innovation specialists from the academic and industrial sector can benefit from worldwide cooperation across disciplines and sectors. The Call will remain open until 2 April 2019. Check the Funding and Tenders Portal for details.
