TC CAS becomes a partner of a European project to support small manufacturing companies

TC CAS becomes one of the 38 partners of the European project ADMA TranS4MErs (Advanced Manufacturing Assistance and Training for SME Transformation) to support small and medium-sized enterprises. The project aims to support the transformation of more than 1.000 small and medium-sized manufacturing enterprises to become "enterprises of the future" by 2025 and to be able to address environmental, digital and societal challenges across Europe.

The ADMA TranS4MErs project will reinforce the competitiveness of manufacturing SMEs by providing fast, flexible, pan-European access to advanced manufacturing advice and expertise, as well as training, drawing on expertise contained within the consortium of partners representing all EU-27 member states. TC CAS is the only partner in the Czech Republic and its participation in this international project is another important confirmation of its competencies in the field of support for digitization and development of innovative business.

ADMA TranS4MErs is a €5.6M project funded by Horizon 2020, building on the work of ADMA (the European Advanced Manufacturing Support Centre). The project was officially launched on 1st October 2021. The project will run for 3 years and will be implemented by a consortium of 38 partners from the 27 European Union member states. Coordinated by the Irish Manufacturing Research (IMR), ADMA TranS4MErs brings a pan-European multi-partner cooperation together, including research and technology organizations, universities, industry associations, chambers of commerce, incubators/accelerators, regional development agencies, and vocational training institutes.

"It is not easy for many small and medium-sized enterprises to introduce advanced production technologies and thus increase their competitiveness in the market. It is for this reason that support accelerating their transformation into "companies of the future" is so crucial and important ", says Petr Hladík, Head of the Business Support Department of the TC CAS, adding:" This support is already provided to Czech companies through services of the Enterprise Europe Network, TC CAS is the coordinator of its Czech part. TC CAS is also a member of the digital innovation hub H4DI and the upcoming European digital innovation hub in the field of cybersecurity. The aim is to enable the Czech small and medium-sized enterprises to access new technologies and knowledge, help them with the introduction of advanced production processes and strengthen their position on the market.
