Dear Members of the SME Intergroup, The SME Intergroup cordially invites you to a breakfast discussion hosted by the Vanguard Initiative on the topic of "Supporting interregional S3 cooperation along industrial value chains. How component 5 in Interreg strengthens interregional cooperation."
The project for lifelong learning in additive manufacturing (LILIAM) is a project within the Vanguard Initiative’s demo-case on Tooling, Machinery and Complex Shapes. LILIAM aims to give a European frame to training programs that specialise in adapting workers to additive manufacturing techniques, such as advanced 3D printing. The project has now received funding through EIT-KIC Calls and is expected to last 2 years, beginning in January 2019.
The Vanguard Initiative welcomes the proposals in the European Commission’s Multiannual Financial Framework package, which represent an ambitious renewed agenda for EU industrial and innovation policies, as well as a clear commitment to smart specialisation principles. However it is essential that clear, concrete and detailed proposals be developed to enable effective synergies between sources of funding that support interregional collaboration along the industrial value chains.
