About the project
In March 2022, the 4STEPS project came to an end. The main aim of the project was to support the successful RIS3 implementation applying the I4.0 principles and services in different companies and different industrial sectors. One of the main project’s outputs was the development of a I4.0 supporting tool catalogue in which project partners described their services that support the implementation of I4.0 in different industries. Catalogue also serves as a tool that helps to enhance the efficacy of the DIHs services in the region. To increase the efficiency, the transnational cooperation network of DIHs that offer different services and complement each other with solutions was established. The efficacy of the intervention and the added transnational value is ensured by the deep jointly definition of the new services by the partners, based on a quadruple helix approach in the project phases, ensuring the application of the I4.0 in the RIS3 strategies.
