Since 2018, the COTEMACO project has supported more than 50 companies in future-proofing their business through automation.
As part of the free COTEMACO SME Support Programme, funded by the Interreg North-West Europe Programme, the project partners have engaged with manufacturing SMEs through field labs. These regional field labs in the Netherlands, the UK, Belgium and Germany have showcased key production steps in the automotive and food industries, in particular, to tackle current low sectorial awareness and knowledge gaps. The field labs exchanged knowledge on different manufacturing tasks, like handling and (un)loading, and how these tasks could be optimised to increase efficiency, as well as business competitiveness.
On the 20th of April 2022, we will present the results of the COTEMACO SME support programme together with the involved companies, and reveal the next steps for the initiative - come and see what activities are in store for you and your company!
The event will take place at Flanders Make Leuven, from 12h to 17h, with an optional tour through the Flanders Make facilities at 11h. If you cannot attend in person, you will be able to follow the plenary sessions online.
