The CE Interreg Project CEUP 2030 (Central Europe Upstreaming for Policy Excellence in Advanced Manufacturing & Industry 4.0 towards 2030) aims to generate stable innovation networks which foster better understanding on Central Europe Advanced Manufacturing and Industry 4.0 (“CAMI4.0”) topics, in particular on Intelligent production Systems, Automation and Robotics, New Materials and Artificial Intelligence. The project intends to generate improved knowledge resource exchange on these technologies via mutual triple-helix stakeholder learnings leading to an upgraded framework for policy-making and implementation.

Ultimately CEUP 2030 creates and tests a common method to promote improved knowledge dissemination to policy-making stakeholders using a collaborative exchange framework based on physical and digital-methods. These methods and the technology use-cases disseminated within the project, are harvested from existing, high-quality innovation know-how in the Central Europe area.

The project focuses on:

  • Identifying the highest-quality innovation know-how in the CE Area, on the CAMI4.0 Topics.
  • Enhancing skills, capabilities and knowledge of people in charge of local, regional, and (trans)national Research, Technology & Innovation (RTI) Policies, associated to the CAMI4.0 Topics.
  • Creating a sustainable structure for awareness-raising and shared, sustainable RTI knowledge resource use to enhance policy decision support.
  • Generating a joint Regional Innovation Strategy for Smart Specialisation (RIS3) for CAMI4.0 Excellence in Europe to anticipate and fast-track policy / strategy policy pilot actions
