INNGUMA a fundamental tool in the FOCUS Project

The goals of the FOCUS project is to develop a method for clustering and supporting the study of exploitation of results of PPP FoF projects funded by the European Commission in the framework program H2020. 

INNGUMA a fundamental tool in the FOCUS Project

This method will be established by observation and study of six clusters around the following areas:

  • 4DMZ
  • Robotics
  • Clean Factory
  • High precision machining
  • Maintenance &Support
  • Additive Manufacturing

INNGUMA has been used in two different phases at the FOCUS project:

  • We used Innguma to activate a Technology Watch process at each cluster. The Technology Watch aimed at making all involved cluster partners aware of the state-of-the art and continuously updating them on the progress beyond. Moreover, the Technology Watch has informed the European manufacturing industry constantly while also formulating (with support from cluster specific top-ranked experts) the future FoF priorities based upon jointly identified business trends and market prospects (“As-is”). Thanks to INNGUMA experts from each cluster performed a Roadmap with top ranked specific topics for future FoF priorities. The Technology Watch is available for the public audience and it is accessible at https://focus.innguma.es/. More than 1000 items has been published. (Articles, doctoral thesis, EU-Projects, Market Trends, Technologies, etc)

 

  • INNGUMA has been selected as a fundamental tool to be applied during the assessment of the exploitability of a EU R&D Project. Innguma is part of EXPLOITT, a special methodology which helps EU R&D Projects to drive strategies and actions for fine- tuning technology development of a future effective industrial exploitation and take up of the results generates under the projects.
