Transformation of industry

Governing the change

fp7 nmp
Objective:To improve the competitiveness of EU industry and ensure its transformationvia:

the effective transition from a resource-based to knowledge-based industry

generation of new breakthrough knowledge

strengthening EU leadership in nano, materials and production technologies

emphasis on integration of different technologies and disciplines across many industrial sectors

Technology Platforms help establish priorities

Holistic approach to Knowledge Based Factories

EC budget (M€) in NMP FP7 (2007-2008)

production manufacturing per theme
Production (Manufacturing) per theme

EC budget distribution in NMP FP7 (2007-2008) and FP6 Calls

(35 % in FP6)

(31 % in FP6)

(34 % in FP6)


Production (Manufacturing) per organisation type

EC budget distribution in NMP FP7 (2007-2008) and FP6 Calls

(25 % in FP6)

(28 % in FP6)

(31 % in FP6)

Adopted by the EC on 26 Nov 2008 and endorsed by the EU Council on 11-12 Dec 2008

Includes ‘smart investment’ in research

‘To support innovation in the manufacturing, construction and automotive sectors, which have recently seen demand plummet as a result of the crisis and which also face significant challenges in the transition to the green economy…’

Three Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs)

Objective: to promote the convergence of public interest with industrial commitment and leadership in determining strategic research activities

Recovery Plan

Research activities


Public-Private Partnerships

Research activities

  • 3PPPs on research activities with committed budget over 4 years (50% EC funding):

“Factories of the future” initiative - Total costs: € 1.2 billion

“Energy-Efficient Buildings” initiative - Total costs: € 1 billion

“Green Cars” initiative - Total costs: € 1 billion

  • Involvement of industry in planning and implementation
  • Quick response implies use of existing instruments

7th Framwork Programme

SRA developed by industry in the ETP

  • Implementation approach:

In 2009, cross-thematic calls under FP7

In parallel exploration of further calls and other options for

longuer term, e.g. Joint Technology Inititiatives

Manufacturing is the driving force in the EU’s economy, with 21% of GDP and 20% of all jobs

Manufacturing has a big environmental impact, with 28% of energy consumption and 33% of overal waste

25 industrial sectors, dominated by SMEs

Objective: Developing enabling technologies to support EU manufacturing across many sectors, to adapt to global competitive pressures by boosting their technological base

“Factories of the future”



“Factories of the future”

Expected results

  • Sustainable Manufacturing:

Quiet, clean and safe green production machines

  • Intelligent Manufacturing:

Intelligent machines capable of interacting with operators, self-monitoring and self-correct smart production lines

  • High performance manufacturing:

Towards zero-defects, lean and adaptive manufacturing processes

  • Manufacturing processes handling new materials:

Light-weight/high-functionality using new materials and micro/nano manufacturing (‘portable factory’)


“Factories of the future”

Product-Services made and used in Europe

High Value Adding Manufacturing Industries


Worker-friendly, customer oriented

Sustainably competitive

Competitively sustainable

Life cycle oriented

Networking manufacturing

Integrated Knowledge

Intelligent Adaptive Systems,

  • European Research on Manufacturing is key for Europe
  • Industrial involvement has been gradually enhanced over years
  • Recovery plan has considered FoF PPP which is planned and implemented together with Industry (budget allocations are fixed)
  • Tooling sector is an essential sector in Manufacturing – Euro Tooling Forum as sub-platform of Manufuture is well recognised
  • FoF & Core NMP programme will run in parallel with separate budgets and calls
