SatisFactory is a ‘Factories of the Future’ project

SatisFactory is part of ‘Factories of the Future’ (FoF), a public-private partnership (PPP) funded by the European Union under its Framework Programmes for Research and Technological Development (FP7 and then H2020). The ‘Factories of the Future’ initiative aims at helping EU manufacturing enterprises, in particular SMEs, to adapt to global competitive pressures by developing the necessary key enabling technologies across a broad range of sectors.

The report ‘Factories of the Future 2020′ presents the strategic roadmap for all the related projects.

They talk about us!

The Horizon 2020 website has published an article on September 22, 2015 about the SatisFactory project. The article entitled “Factories of the Future: productive AND attractive?” presents the project main activities and objectives.

What are the other ‘Factories of the Future’ projects?

  • VISTRA – Virtual Simulation and Training
  • Know4Car – An internet-based Collaborative Platform for Managing Manufacturing Knowledge
  • ARUM – Adaptive pRodUction Management
  • amePLM – Advanced Platform for manufacturing engineering and Product Lifecycle Management
  • FACTS4WORKERS – Worker Centric Workplaces in Smart Factories

International collaboration

The SatisFactory project will liaise with international manufacturing organizations such as IMS (Intelligent Manufacturing systems) and EFFRA (European Factories of the Future Research Association).

  • The European Factories of the Future Research Association (EFFRA) is a non-for-profit, industry-driven association promoting the development of new and innovative production technologies. EFFRA was established jointly by the MANUFUTURE technology platform and key industrial associations to shape, promote and support the implementation of the ‘Factories of the Future’ public-private partnership.

  • The Intelligent Manufacturing systems (IMS) is an industry-led, international business innovation and research and development (R&D) program established to develop the next generation of manufacturing and processing technologies through multi-lateral collaboration. It provides global services to institutions from the supporting Regions including the European Union, Mexico, and the United States of America and is a premier sponsor of the World Manufacturing Forum.
