About the project

The Industry 4.0 is an inevitable revolution affecting all industrial sectors. Its impacts depend on the readiness of regions to respond, accept and adopt the changes. Transnational cooperation can help to strengthen the regional innovation capacities and make our regions more future-ready.

The ECOS4IN project will do so by supporting close cooperation between stakeholders, who are involved in smart specialisation strategies (RIS3) on the implementation of Industry 4.0.

It will closely analyse the current situation of Industry 4.0 implementation and create a tool “ECOS4IN Knowledge Base”, which will be tested in pilots as an essential source of information to raise awareness about Industry 4.0. Moreover, the project will design the ecosystem model according to the regional conditions and context and equip the participating regions with action plans that will provide relevant material for forthcoming revisions of RIS3 strategies.
