The Sustainable Industry Ecosystem (SIE) project aims at supporting Green and Sustainable Digital Transformation of Finnish manufacturing SMEs
- by up-scaling and coordinating different regional smart specialisation strategies,
- by integrating digital platforms and DIHs at a service of cross-border large scale experimentations and
- by enriching previous results in the domain of Industry 4.0 with innovative green and digital applications and open platforms.
The scaling up of technologies is supported by the networking of pilot lines with transparent and common access policy and toolsets for realising green and digital product-service solutions cross-sector.
The project will engage the Finnish research, development and innovation community, enhancing it with strong international collaboration aiming to promote knowledge-driven green and digital innovation, and release the full potential of macro-regional collaboration.
