ActionPlanT – a project of the Private-Public Partnership “Factories of the Future”
The ActionPlanT project was co-funded by the European Commission under the Private-Public Partnership (PPP) "Factories of the Future" within the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) (Grant Agreement Number 258617). It developed a vision and a roadmap on the short, medium, and long term role of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in the European manufacturing industry. The research project started in June 2010 and ended in May 2012.
The two main activities of ActionPlanT were:
- Establishing a vision for the role of ICT in manufacturing of the future, in cooperation with the European Commission. ActionPlanT also liaises with EFFRA, the Factories of the Future Research Association, as a key industry representing body. ActionPlanT activities include the development of a roadmap to prioritize most promising topics for the next Framework Programme for Research and Innovation (‘Horizon 2020’, covering the period 2014-2020).
- Developing and validating a concept for industrial learning, extensively piloted via Industrial Learning Pilot Events (ILPEs)and workshops amongst stakeholders in industry, academia, and the European technology platforms alike. The related activities include the development of an IL model and methodology, their testing and evaluation through the organization of ILPEs and workshops, and the dissemination of the validated results to reach a wider audience among European manufacturing workers
