Organizer SMARTY - Smart SMEs for Industry 4.0

Organizer of Digital Innovation & Skills in Industry4.0 - Interregional Policy Brokerage

The Interreg Europe project SMARTY aims at establishing a common basis for policy learning among its members in order to deal with the main challenges hampering the diffusion of Industry 4.0 solutions and their enabling potential into the European SME ecosystem.

SMARTY will implement interregional learning activities to identify, analyse and share solutions which have already been tested in one of the participating regions and that can help in the innovation processes of other partners’ regional industrial systems. These exchanges of experience will take place at the Interregional Thematic Seminars and Interregional Policy Brokerage workshops organized by the project on a semester basis. The learning potential embedded in these interregional exchanges will result in the uptake of new good practices and projects by the partners, thus enabling the delivery of innovation within regional supply chains.

SMARTY is co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) under the umbrella of the European Union programme Interreg Europe with around 1.99 M EUR ERDF (2.42 M EUR Total Budget). It runs over a period of four years and started on 1st of August, 2019.
