This week, ERNACT led, and Enterprise Ireland funded, Innovation-as-Service Project (IaaS project), visited the Irish Midlands to capture their smart technology solutions. The event gave the opportunity to visit Industry 4.0 labs and training centres, such us, Technological University of the Shannon (TUS), I-LOFAR, Stream Birr, Midland Skills Centre and the First Polymer Training Skillnet.
In showcasing the smart technology, we completed virtual tours of labs, with a focus on the services their equipment can provide. In addition, we recorded short videos to capture the nonvisible industry 4.0 services.
The industry 4.0 solutions are being captured to display on the IaaS project’s directory. This platform will be a catalogue of services, it will assist the partners in achieving the overall goal of building regional strength. The IaaS project guarantees the Border region that it will be better connected to distant technology providers - with a new capability to improve the productivity, innovation, and entrepreneurship levels in local SMEs. This will resonate strongly with them as they experience every day the challenges of doing business in peripheral border areas.
Stay tuned more information will be shared soon!
