Better Factory is looking for artists, manufacturing SMEs and technology providers!

Open CallApril 25 2022 - 25 June 2022

Calling all artists, manufacturing SMEs and technology providers! If you work in plastic and rubber, furniture and wood, food and agriculture, construction, metal and machinery, and textile and leather, then this could be for you.

The Expression of Interest (EoI), which launched on the 25th of April and closes on 25th June, is looking for Manufacturing SMEs and Mid-Caps willing to redesign their current products and services together with Artists and Technology Suppliers and to optimise their production costs.

Once applicants are selected for the EoI, they will pass through to the next stage. Here they will be matched with two other applicants to create a team and given the support they need to jointly write the full proposal for the Open Call.

If successful in winning a spot during the 2nd Open Call, participants will explore new markets using digital tools, test and develop new lean-agile production technologies, make deals through the Robotics and Automation MarketPlace (RAMP), access training to re-skill staff, receive business support and mentoring, and to get up to EUR 200,000 funding.

In particular, artists will be able to collaborate with Manufacturing SMEs for the redesign and co-creation of new products and services. Artists can spur innovations on the path to digital transformation with manufacturing SMEs, create new business opportunities and expand their portfolio.
