Welcome to the FOCUS project

What is FOCUS?

FOCUS brings together 11 partners from 5 European “Factories of the Future” (FoF) project clusters to determine the state of the art within their areas of research. The clusters within FOCUS are: zero defect manufacturing (4ZDM), clean factories, robotics, high precision manufacturing (high micro), and maintenance & support.

Our mission is to develop methods for improved exploitation of FoF projects results from our five participating FoF clusters.

Our mission:

FOCUS will support methods for improved exploitation of FoF project results from our five participating FoF clusters.

Our objectives:

In five existing FoF Clusters we will:
  • Provide pro-active support to disseminate the projects’ tangible outcomes to support industrial exploitation and take-up within the clusters.
  • Review the state of the art and formulate future FoF priorities.
Building upon these five existing FoF Clusters we will:
  • Deliver a model and associated methodology for effective cluster creation, execution and monitoring in future FoF PPP clusters.
  • Deliver a model and associated methodology for industrial exploitation and take-up of future FoF PPP projects.


Partners:

Europe Partners11 partners from 7 countries in Europe are combining their expertise and knowledge to determine the State of the Art within the given clusters. Through sharing their existing connections, and forging new ones, partners will establish a network of experts to share their insight.
