Are you a manufacturing SME, artist or technology provider? Then Better Factory project might be of interest to you!

Better Factory is a European-Commission funded project, which comes under the umbrella of S+T+ARTS. The project is offering teams of one manufacturing SME, one artist and one technology supplier grants of up to €200K to re-design the services or products of the manufacturing SME, in other words, to become a ‘better factory’ as the name suggests.

This June, Better Factory joined the European Robotics Forum with S+T+ARTS and held a Live Stream interview at the S+T+ARTS booth, to highlight:

  • The status of Better Factory
  • How their KTE teams are coming along with their work
  • How to apply for the next Open Call.

The speakers were four of the project’s 28 partners, each taking care of a different side of the project:

Better Factory is officially opening its second Open Call on 1 September, 2022. It has just closed its round of (optional) Expression of Interest applications, which saw 185 applicants, and will prepare the top teams to present their proposals for the Open Call in September. If you are interested to apply, it is possible to apply straight for the Open Call, but instead of being matched up into a team, you must have already put together your team (of one manufacturing SME, one artist, and one technology supplier).
