ECOS4IN - Cross-border Ecosystem for Industry 4.0

This transnational cooperation project is funded by Interrreg CENTRAL EUROPE and aims to strengthen the innovation capacity for industry 4.0.

The 4th industrial revolution is inevitable and will affect all industrial sectors. The Impact of Industry 4.0 depends on readiness of regions to respond, accept and adopt the changes.

ECOS4IN project supports the sustainable cooperation of actors of innovation systems to enhance and prepare the regional innovation capacities for such changes.

The project will start with a detailed analysis of the current situation of Industry 4.0 implementation and creating a tool “ECOS4IN knowledge base”, which will be used in pilot testing at information hubs to provide the knowledge to the target groups to raise awareness about Industry 4.0.

The information gained by analysis will be used in the process of describing the ecosystem model according to the regional conditions and context.

The last phase of project represents the development of action plans in all partner regions. This will ensure the sustainability of project results by providing the relevant material for forthcoming revisions of regional innovation strategies.
